so it's an additional $220 for hero to call to match villain's flop reraise
$795-$220 $575 This is how much hero has left to shove if he is going all in
Size of the Pot
$125 before flop action
To simplify we'll just throw in villain's $400 and hero's $400 bet
Pot is now $925
hero shoves $575 into $925. So pot becomes $1500
And it's $575 for villain to call...1500/575--> 2.6:1
Slight variation from my approach.
$125 in the pot before action, $180 from hero, and $400 from villain:
125 + 180 + 400 = 705.
$705 in pot and $220 to call.
If we shove and villain is always calling, my calculation is as follow:
$705 in pot + $575 more we can win from villain = $1280.
$1280 = direct and implied odds combined, essentially the most we can win at this point if we shove our remaining $795 in the pot after facing the $400 raise.
So the odds would be:
1280:795 if we decide to shove on the flop with 0% fold equity. Simplify that and you get:
~1.61:1 for pot odds.
Only if you add TT+ to villain's range will we have the proper odds.
