Fairly sure this is a call, but I'm having trouble working out the odds.

Pot odds are about 2.34:1
Win odds if he's pushing 77+, AK and AQ are %37.

I'm having trouble putting these two figures together though, any help?

Thanks!

Hi Jameisus,

So to calculate your odds here.

You have to put in 730 more chips to call. There is 1480 chips in the middle already. If you were to call the pot would be 1480 + 730 = 2210.

(total size of the pot) 2210 / (amount to call) 730 = 3

So we are getting 3:1 on a call.

In terms of how much equity do we need to break even 730 / 2210 = 33%

Cheers
Andy
