Hi everybody

I've got a little problem and I guess the aswer is pretty simple, but at the moment I just can't see the connection

I have been reading a lot of poker books and articles, and so far I understand the most of it, but there is just one thing I can't seem to understand - It's about pot odds - I,ve pasted an example below this and I hope somebody can help me to understand this little thing.

I'm a little bit confused about one thing - how do they calculate $14:$2 to become 3.5:11 - isn't it 7:1? - this is the one thing I have had a hard time to understand - could somebody please show me the calculation model for this, so that I'll be able to practise this kind of calculation.

And if you would be so kind to put in some extra examples of this kind of calcultion with your answer, so that I can see the way you calculate it, I would be very gratefull

I've pasted the chapter that this particular calculation came from

- What if the opponents were to bet $4 instead of $2? There would now be $14 in possible winnings. Your pot odds, however, would now be at $14:$2, or roughly 3.5:11.
