This is more a question of how I would go about calculating if I have the right odds to call this. I tried working it out and got as far as I trying to work out if the chances of hitting a set were enough to call this (I though they could have any higher pair or AJ+ etc.

Thanks, hope its not too long trying to explain the odds stuff. But would really appreciate a detailed response as I have already read a few articles on this and don't fully get it

Hello Jeffers16,

Actually those odds we can Call more often implied odds and they are calculated and hopefully I did understand correctly that you asked if you can Call the 3bet since you can't Call the 4bet but the calculation goes like this:

[It's the amount in the pot (without your call) + villain's remaining effective stack] : the amount to call

Example: (0,23 + 0,81) : 0,11 = 1,04 : 0,11 = 9,46:1.

Your odds to hit the set on the flop are 7,5:1.

Therefore we can say that the Call was correct as the result that you will get his stack postflop.

Best regards.
