Betting The Odds

Posted by on

Think for a while and bet $ 15.200 on a pot of $ 24,400. To pay for this bet bluffs would have to argue that 30% of the time (basing on the pot odds). I have a pair of eights, so I can only win against a lamppost.

So I shot payment or no? I thought that was not bluffing 30% of the time. Perhaps 15-20%, which was not sufficient to pay, so ! I went all in with $ 36,000, $ 21,000 had to pay more to see. So, he was risking $ 36,000 to win $ 35.600. This move would be run half the time to be profitable. So, even won the 15-20% of the time you’re bluffing. If you are not pulling a bluff, you have a hand like KQ or AA, a hand that we must ensure that pull at least half the time to make a profit.

(Daros realized that if it is profitable to call a raise might be even more profitable). Have someone pull overpair seems a difficult task, but notes the move from perspective: I call on a flop that nearly did not have any type of project. On the turn the last card is matched and again paid a jackpot bet. It is impossible to have paid twice a pot-sized bet with a project in the two streets. I have to have a made hand, a pair or better. Now when I raise on the river, the AA can only win against a lamppost. Do not bet on the river for value with A K. So, What hand could pay two bets on the size of the boat, doing that to win had to be going to bluff? Time ran out and threw what I assume it would be a hand of AK, so I managed to win a jackpot of $ 52,000 with much effort. One caveat before I go: Do not make a raise bluff on each river. Your opponent must be able to get a hand and make a large fold. The same warning to foreign betting. Think about what kind of reaction you expect and if your opponent will be adjusted or not. The examples I have given here are just to show you how to think outside the establishment. I could have made a list of hundreds of situations where different thinking than normal may help. Consider all your options. Before you pay or do fold, thinks for a second whether a raise could be better and why. Before betting 2 / 3 of the pot, consider what would your opponent if you bet the pot u. Even if you decide that the standard is the best move, at least now you know why you’re doing. Good luck considering all your options.
