In the Cash Game Course "Pot Odds and Expected Value" it says:

Example with the nut flush draw:
You have the nut flush draw (nine outs) on the flop and the pot is $4. Your opponent bets $1. There is now $5 in the pot ($4 + $1), and it is $1 to call. The pot odds are therefore 5:1.

According to the chart above, your odds are 4:1 to hit your flush draw. The pot odds are higher. You should therefore call.

You can see why this call is correct by looking at the long-term picture. If you make this call four times, mathematics says that you will hit your draw once. That means you will win $5 for every $4 (4 * $1) you invest. That is good business.
In the underlined sentence it should say "If you make this call five times ...".

Am I really the first one to notice that? Or am I just the only one reading the courses
