Apologies if the following question is too dumb even for a dumb questions thread, but here goes... I'm using a hand range chart to learn how to act pre flop on NLHE 6Max. The chart tells me what to do when other players open raise and 3bet (based on my position versus their position). Pre flop scenario: SB - \$1 BB - \$2 UTG - Calls MP - Folds CO - Folds BTN - Hero with A 9 Problem: The chart doesn't tell me what to do if no-one has open raised but someone has called. Questions:Generally speaking, when using such charts, should I respond to a call in the same way as I respond to an open raise, a fold or should a completely different response be taken? What would you do in this scenario? Thanks for your help

If someone were to play 100 \$7 HUSNGs with each player paying \$0.29 in rake each match how much would that player be losing if they finished ITM only 35% of the time? How about 40% and 45%?

Rule of thumb is to add a big blind to 3bb for each limper (assuming online poker). So you'd raise A9o to 4bb in your example (assuming 100bb deep). In theory you'd need to tighten up the raising range because your raise needs to go through an extra player but it's generally not necessary in practice. fwiw some would even advocate loosening it up but that's dubious imo.

lol at using the term ITM when talking about HU donkaments, the word "win" will suffice. Clarify whether you mean these are \$7+0.29 donkaments or \$6.71+0.29 donkaments

 09-13-2017, 08:04 PM #14180 walkby adept   Join Date: Oct 2012 Posts: 743 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** \$6.71 + \$0.29 - sorry about that.

Thanks mrno1324, very kind of you to help me out, I'll put that into practice. What a nice forum this is!

 09-18-2017, 06:45 AM #14182 Nutwallace stranger   Join Date: Sep 2017 Posts: 6 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** Hiya, was asked the following question: You put your opponent on a low/medium pair. How many outs do you have to win? Hole: A K Flop: Q 10 2 Is it... A) 6 B) 10 C) 12 (FYI the answer is given as 10 but I couldn't get to it). Questions: Does "You put your opponent on a low/medium pair" mean you think your opponent has a low/medium pair? (Sorry ). If so, could you show me how it's 10 outs please? Thanks as always!

Ahh, so that's 3 aces for higher pair, 3 kings for higher pair and 4 jacks for the straight, right?

Thanks mate!

 09-21-2017, 06:29 AM #14185 Nutwallace stranger   Join Date: Sep 2017 Posts: 6 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** Hi there, had a question about the following NLHE starting hands chart found at: http://www.pokerology.com/charts/nlh...ands-chart.pdf In the 'Pairs' row that says '99 - 22', the advice is to fold in early and middle position if the action has folded to you. Is this an error or is this correct? If correct, can you explain why (given that if the action has called/raised before you it advises you to call). Thanks!

In position you will have the implied odds most of the time, and it becomes a very easy hand to play

 09-23-2017, 11:28 AM #14191 parandy centurion   Join Date: Aug 2015 Posts: 139 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** Hello everybody, how do we get our equity on the flop, I know we can just use the 4 and 2 rule but how do we do it the proper way? This from Poker math that matters: Estimate the hero's equity for the following hand. Hero: 3♣️3♦️ Villain: J♦️J♥️ Board: 3♠️5♣️5♦️ We can just use the rule of 4 and 2: We will need to estimate the villains equity first, villain has 4 outs, so 4x4=16 100 - 16 = 84 How do we do this, if we do it the exact way? In the book Owen Gaines showed showed the way how to do it, did I do it right? Owen showed this way and I followed it exactly like he described, this is how to do it from the flop.

 09-23-2017, 01:01 PM #14193 parandy centurion   Join Date: Aug 2015 Posts: 139 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** Another question, I was checking what our equity is, when we have 8 outs, I used several odds calculators and they all said it was 18.18%. These charts says it is 17%. http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/wp-co...-Outs-Odds.png https://pkrguide.files.wordpress.com...8/pot-odds.gif Which one is correct?
