This is a discussion on How many player's really use odd's when playing? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I've watched videos read books and found the odds very from player to player along with the way they apply the odds.
I just play for the enjoyment. I am not into calculating odds for each hand. That would take too much time, and take away from the fun of the game. After all what are the odds that if you have AA at the start and some bimbo with 2 n 7 off suit goes in that he will win ? I do not know the actual odds but I do know that bimbo will beat me more often than not
I think that all the regulars on the circuit should use the odds, it is basic for this game, you cannot play it without knowing it, the calculation of outs and pot odds is basic. I think the only players who shouldn't use it are the fish and recreational players who think it's a game of chance
