PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (8 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

MP2 ($2.67)
CO ($1.54)
Button ($3.41)
SB ($1.56)
BB ($2)
UTG ($2)
Hero (UTG+1) ($1.96)
MP1 ($0.81)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A, 8
UTG raises to $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, 4 folds, SB calls $0.03, 1 fold

Flop: ($0.14) A, 4, 7 (3 players)
SB checks, UTG bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.11, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.09

Turn: ($0.36) J (2 players)
UTG bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

River: ($0.40) Q (2 players)
UTG bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.24, UTG calls $0.22

Total pot: $0.88 | Rake: $0.03

Spoiler:
The EV calculation you pointed out there is for a SINGLE decision, not for a whole hand. You can't really calculate the EV of the whole hand easily like that.

So, you could, say calculate the EV of your river bet using that, or calculate the EV of your turn call using that formula, etc.

Let's say hero and villain are both deep stacked and villain bets a pot sized bet on turn. Hero had an oesd to the nuts. Does hero have enough equity to call the bet?
thanks.

Direct odds, no. Implied odds, probably, depending on what "deep stacked" means, and depending on your reads of how easily you think it'll be to get it in with villain if you hit given the range of cards he has.

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

It depends ...

If villain has TP, probably not
If villain has a lower straight or top set, maybe

Really depends on the board, the villain, how much eff stack is left, ...

Post a specific hand if you really want to know.

Most likely you're not getting implied odds though.
People tend to over-estimate implied odds by a lot. Especially on the turn.

I know if you're on the button (for example) and someone limps in front of you you should add a big blind to your raise, but should you tighten your range a little bit given you're investing more money in?

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

How do you collect casino winnings? There is a festival in slovakia I am assuming 300k GTD so first should be around 50-60k, how do we claim that amount of money in EU? Revolut is an option or not? Many banks don't like gambling winnings, and we can't get cash over 10k+ to flights...

If you are in a tournament, this is probably true. In any case, if there are callers before you, their calling ranges are at least somewhat strong, so your button betting range must be stronger then opening with no action in front of you.

Hi,

In a flush hand can the same number or picture card be used twice? Example:

Board: 7♦️ 4♦️ J♦️ J♦️ 2♠️

Player1: 9♦️K♣️

Player2: 2♠️ A♥️

Would player1 win with a flush?

"flush - any five non-consecutive cards of the same suit"

Only in a game that used an abnormal deck and such rules.

In normal Texas Hold'em, no.

What are "implied odds hands"? As in: "Implied odds hands play well enough when getting good odds in multi-way pots".

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

stuff that can get in cheap and will make potentially big hands. suited connectors is usually a decent example.
