Apologies if this has already been asked, I couldn't find the answer in the search. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.
According to the pokerstrategy bronze article on pot odds, you should calculated the pot odds by finding the ratio of
(amount needed to call) : (total pot at this point).
My question is do you need to include your call in the total pot value?
E.g. $10 in pot on turn. MP1 bets $2. Are you looking at a 1:6 ratio or a 1:7 ratio? Please explain why.
I have heard in hasenbraten's videos that for if you are playing BSS and and SSS 3bets you allin then you can call with over approx. 40% equity on their range. This must be taking your call into account in the total pot.
E.g. NL20 I raise to $0.80 shortstacker behind goes all in with $4
If I take the 1st method then I must call $3.20 for $5.10 (including blinds) only allows me to call with approx 63% equity.
However, if I include my call then it is $3.20 for $8.30 which allows me to call with approx. 39% equity as mentioned in the video.
Thanks in advance for your valuable help :)
