Hi hbh,

I am still not that clued up on pot odds, I get the bit on showdown ok, but working out odds to raise call or fold on the flop and turn confuses me a great deal.

However, all is not lost. Here is a wonderful cheat sheet from RockerguyAA which condenses the SnG course into two sheets that should really help your game. It is in the first post on the thread

Cheers,

Hi hbhuang!

What exactly are you looking for?

The link that you have is for starting hands with a given number of BB's left in your stack.

Pot odds are based on how a bet by other players and the % of that pot that you would have to put into it at a given point in time.

Are you looking for starting hand info, or pot odds info? They're two different concepts.

If you're looking for more info on odds, I'd recommend watching this video from Dave (TheLangolier).

Good luck at the tables.

Hi hbhuang!

To calculate the pot odds, you take the amount in the pot and divide it by the amount that you would need to put into the pot.
Ex: There is 2000 in the pot and it takes 1000 for you to call the opp's bet, then the pot odds are 2:1 (2000/1000).

Whether or not someone else is all-in, is really going to be irrelevant here if you only want to look at the pot odds. It's simply the size of the pot divided by the amount of chips that you will need to put in.

Here is the list of starting hands by category. These are what the references are to. For example, if it says Category 4, then you'd want to play any hand from categories 1,2,3,4 from the list. If I didn't have one of these hands, then I'll fold.

Category 1: AA, KK

Category 2: QQ, AKs, AKo, JJ

Category 3: AQs, AQo, TT, 99

Category 4: AJs, KQs, 88, 77

Category 5: AJo, ATs, ATo, KQo, KJs, 66, 55

Category 6: A9s-A2s, KJo, KTs, QJs, QTs, JTs, 44, 33, 22

Category 7: A9-A2, KTo, QJo, QTo, JTo, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s

Category 8: K9s, K9o, K8s, K8o, Q9s, Q8s, J9s, T8s, T9o, 97s, 98o, 86s, 87o, 75s, 76o, 64s

Hope this helps.

Thank you for that list,euhm still one question about pot odds.
For example ,blinds are 100/200 and im in the button,i bet 600 (Stack 5000) and my opponent go all in with 2500 on the bb ,so the pot is 600+2500+100 =3800,so my pot odds are 3800:1700 right?

600+2500+100 = 3800 but you have to put in 1900 to call, not 1700.

3800/1900 = 2:1
