I've read that after the flop, you can roughly use the statistic of 4 times 2, for the likeliness of hitting the cards for a winning hand. -should that be an option. Are there any truth to this?
Hope some of you lovely people understand my wanting english.. Regards to all. Søren from Denmark
Yeah, there is such a rule. You have to count your outs, and then multiply them by 4 - it gives you the percentage odds for winning either on the turn or on the river (use this only if your opponent is all-in and you are to decide what to do). If you want to know your chances to get your out on the next street only (eg. on the turn if you're on the flop or on the river if you're on the turn), then multiply your outs by 2.
Then you compare this number with your pot odds and decide whether it's worth to call or to fold.
