      Let's say I'm counting the pot odds in a $2/$4 fixed limit game. I know to count the first two rounds in $2 small bets increments. However, how should I count bets on the turn and the river? Should I a) count these bets as 1 whole/ absolute bet or b) does 1 equal two $2 small bets?

      Please advise.

      Hi triviums,
      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com!
      First read the article on odds and outs

      Although you may already know all the material, it sometimes helps to read it again.

      To make a long story short:
      Odds = (Pot + Bet):Bet

      So if the pot is $8, and the bet is 2, then pot odds are 10:2 or 5:1
      If the bet is 4, then 12:4 or 3:1

      Are there implied odd? They are less in FL games, but they still exist.
      For example, in stud games it may be worth calling a bet with a four-flush even if the odds are against you, since there are several more cards to come, with the pot getting bigger each time.

      While you're here, perhaps you could take a moment to Introduce yourself. Let us know what games you like, how long you've been playing, and a bit about yourself.
