One simple question what are the right odds to set mine for full ring?

Head's up, 6-max or full ring it's the same. Looking at the direct pot odds to call a bet, then the implied odds in your stack that a bigger stack covers.

I go with a ball park, 15 : 1 odds combined. In full ring, depending on stakes, you may get lots of open limpers and then over call limps which helps with immediate/direct odds. You need to pay attention to stack sizes to realise the implied odds when you hit vs overall the times you get paid.

Sorry not a simple answer on this one.


PS. I remember a discussion on 3-bet pots to set mine and that has similar principals better explained than I did if multi-way.
