Question about pot odds
So I use the 2/4 rule to get a rough idea of outs and I've been trying to play pretty robotic at the micros (finally got a bit from a freeroll so it's all absolutely the lowest limits possible).
I know if the chance of hitting is a higher percent than the percent you pay to win the pot you make the call. but what do you include as pot? (these are high since i'm doing 2c/4c but its easier with whole numbers) say pot is 2 bucks. I'm sittin on 2 hearts and 2 on board. so 2/4 says thats 18% i'll hit turn. so is the max call 18% of 2 (.36) or do I include his bet too? guy bets .45 so pot is now 2.45? making the .45 roughly 18% of the "new pot"?
and how do yall use pot odds
when deciding a first bet into a bet (post flop)? do you try to figure his draw and slightly outbet what his pot odds
would be? or bet using your own pot odds (like i see flush draw so i bet 15% to give under 18% odds)
