Hey guys,

Im more of an SNG player, but I have been slowly learning and practicing BSS. Im learning BSS because I plan on playing NL200 at the casino one time this summer. I strongly believe that BSS will own all of the noobs that buy in with min at the casino. Anyways, Ive always used some form of pot odds calculation. What I would do is calculate the % of chance for me to hit my outs by giving 2% pet out (its about right) and then check the % of the pot I need to call. Instead of using the X to Y form. However, I realize that most people use the X to Y ratio form and it is probably better but I find it very hard to calculate it fast in my head when I have situations like 5 outs and stuff like that (not the classic OESD and FD). Hence, I was wondering if I should be calculating the pot odds and chances to hit my outs all the time or if just having a general feel of it is good enough?

The thing is that in SNGs I rarely find myself chasing draws and the chip ratio is non linear, hence I didnt have much of a need to calculate pot odds very precisely except maybe in the early stage.

Also, is it really worth getting more familiar with the X to Y ratios (dont know how to call that form of ratios lol)
