Sorry, that i post something that is not my hand but i dont understand this play by MP3 (REG).

So did some lab work that 87s vs AQ+,JJ+ is around 33% of equality.

So this mathematically make this a call because he is getting even odds? ( 33%/1:3, \$10 into \$30 pot, is this correct?).

Hi Evante,

He needs to call 10 to win 40 so he gets 25% pot odds (a bit more after you factor in the rake).

With his hand, he has 32.4% equity versus AQ+, JJ so he can call if that's the range he put villain on.

However what we have to consider here is the likelihood of him having fold equity there when he 4-bets.

If he doesn't have fold equity he is putting in 18.5 to win the same amount. So one could calculate how much FE he needs to show a profit with this hand. It's fair to assume that SB's range is rather wide (for 3-betting) and he can fold some hands. It's also fair to assume that SB will most likely stack off lighter than JJ+, AQ+.

sorry for my lag of fundementals

sir why do we put our own 10 bucks into the equation of calculation odds?

so we are effective getting 25% then 33%?

How much of the pot are we putting in? You can always look at it that way.

You can calculate the odds with %s or with ratios.

For ratios you don't put your money in the pot however for %s you do.

So we put \$10 into a final pot of \$40, in other words we put 1/4th of the pot or 25%.

33% is if we get bet full pot into. So there's one pot on the table, one pot from villain and one from us (so we put one third).
