1. In the silver section there is a chart for playing SH(shorhanded - 6max)

The bronze and silver sections are mainly for FR(fullring - 9-10players). But the concepts can be apply to SH with a little adaptation

The gold section and above are for both FR and SH. The concepts from there apply to both strategyes.

2. I looked at the chart. If you are first to act, you play as everybody folded to you.

5. Yes, you will find that in the bronze section. And on a more advanced level in the silver section.

**When you have a drawing hand and don't know if you should call or not, you must do theese calculations:**
**a)** **cound your outs**. Outs are the cards that help you.

For OSED you have 8 outs(8 cards that give you the straight)

For FD you have 9 outs (9 cards that give you the flush)

For Gutshot you have 4 outs (4 cards that give you the straight)

For example if you have K:hQ

and the flop is 3:c7:d9

you can say that you have 6 outs (

**K** **K** **K** **Q** **Q** **Q** could help you improve to the best hand)

**b)** Depending on how many outs you have, you

**calculate your odds to call**.

You have a chart in the bronze section for this

Odds to call with 8outs(OSED) are 1:5

Odds to call with 9outs(FD) are 1:4

Odds to call with 4outs (gutshot) are 1:11

**c)** You

**calculate the pot odds**.

That is:

you look at how much you have to pay. Depending on the action before you, you will have to call 1bet, 2bets, 3bets, or 4bets. (on the flop these are SmallBets, on the turn, they are BigBets)

You can calculate using $ - how much $ you have to call or using Smallbets/BigBets.

- lets say you have to call x$ (or xbets, whatever you want)

- now you look at the pot. the pot has P$ in it (or Pbets)

- You say you have to call x$ in a P$ pot. That means

**x$: P$** - those are your pot odds. you simplify them to look like your odds to call (1:5 or 1:4 ...or anything like that). so

**x: P** is like

**1: P/x**
EXAMPLE: Lets say you have FD. You need

**1:4** odds to call.

You quicly calculate your pot odds 1: P/x. If you get at least

**1:4**(If pot odds are at least 1:4), then you shold call.

The bigger the pot, the better.

If you get for example

**1:7**(pot odds), you shold call with a smile on your face(because you only need 1:4). If you get

**1:3**(pot odds) you should fold your FD(because you need 1:4)

**So remember:**
**a) outs** - are those cards that help you win the hand

**b) odds to call** - you cand find these in a chart in the bronze section

**c) pot odds** - you compare these with your odds to call and decide your move.

In the Silver section you will learn about implied odds/ reverse implied odds and how to discount outs. and about equity too

You have a lot to learn. Deposit some money(or get your starting capital) and have fun with bronze and silver articles.

goodluck
