Pot Odds question pertaining to odds such as 4:3, 6:5, and 7:3
Hey guys I have a total noob question for ya. Unfortunately I don't hang around ANYONE that likes poker. As odd as that sounds I swear to god I'm not even kidding you! So I've been basically trying to teach myself using online tutorials, forums, and youtube vids. I'm not about to head down to the casino and learn to play the hard way until I get a better understanding of a few things.
One of those being pot odds
. I understand the outs and how to go about calculating those. What I'm a little foggy on is figuring out my pot odds
and how to apply them to my hand. I found a cool online training tool on pokertrainer.se that has helped me quite a bit but there's a few things I'm not getting when I do the pot odds training exercise.
My question is this. The training sets u up w/ what's in the pot and your opponents bet. It also gives you a list of odds to choose from. I undertand the simple ones 2:1, 3:1, 4:1 I don't understand the other 3 odds on the exercise and how to get them thus screwing me when I go thru the training. These are 4:3, 6:5, 7:3
There's also this little "X 5 s" that appears sometimes that I don't understand either.
Any help explaining the odds listed above and how to get them would be greatly appreciated.
