    Hellooo guys and girls,

    I havent dealt with the topic of pot odds in years, because I basically thought I would "know" wether or not I can call.. Which is obv a little stupid, so I have an example here.

    I bet flop, check turn, he bets turn, were having a not so clean gut shot. Odds are saying 7.1:1 (12%). With having 4 outs (four Tens for a Straight) I'm giving us about 8-10% to win this hand.. maybe an Ace or King is helpful too.

    Lets assume we are having 10%(!), does that mean we have to fold according to our Pot Odds? Like.. does StarsHelpers 7.1:1 (12%) mean, that we need AT LEAST 12% chance of winning, to make a proper call?


    Thanks a lot :) I lately thought I should pay more attention to my pot odds instead of my "i know youre a fish and this shit doesnt matter" sort of playing.

    Bests! fox

    Yeah, if he was all-in for 3$ then you would need 12% for breakeven call. So four tens arent enough, you would need some of your pair outs to be good. You block flush draws, he might be on one card gutter, but thaen again you might be drawing dead or just to 4 outs, without good read its fold for me. But what do I know, I struggle with these spots too. Just my 2 cents, hope someone have clear answer here.
