      Hi ,
      I've read a little about fold equity in blogs and I was wandering , are there programs which help calculating FE in real time or is this not allowed?

      Any way to estimate it fast like when we calculate pod odds i.e. we check number of ours and multiply it by 4 or 2 depends on turn or river.

      Hi FWKanobi,

      you can't really calculate fold equity. It more or less something you'll be able to estimate with growing experience.

      Hey FWKanobi,

      As Chiller already said fold equity is probably the hardest equity to calculate and there are no programs of calculating it for you. It has to do with the equity you generate by getting opponents to fold hands which still have equity against you (or are ahead of you).

      It is therefore a very opponent specific type of equity which a program can't calculate.

      In general though most "real time equity" calculators are not allowed by poker sites.

      Best regards
