Understanding Pot Odds & Calculating outs

By: sim177 @ 12:10 (EDT) / 250 / Comment ( 0 )

Ok excluding the differences between tourney's, Sit'n'Go tourney's to your general ring table games in Hold 'em. I'm just thinking about the hand types you play. I've really noticed a change in equity if u call it that with trash hands  you normally would fold. Like 10, 5o for example. I don't know.

I have missed a few hands when seeing the rivers in tournaments throughout my games & am seeing to many rivers with trash hands I've folded that end up being the winning hands in general games. I have no idea how I'm going to grasp a hold of this cause it's causing me to tilt...

I came across an answer whilst studying the CASH GAME COURSE..... .........................................(CALCULATING POT ODDS).  Maths and English were not my strong subjects as you can see. An bobs your uncle, figurably speaking.

Upon ''reading'' the course in Pot Odds & Calculating I realised that if the odds are in your favour you may still lose your hand with any playing hand in general.
