You will be off by a little bit, but it is close enough for most EV and pot odds calculations For example blinds 1\$-2\$, UTG+1 raises to 8, 3 callers, both blinds fold, I put the pot at \$32. On the flop, UTG+1 bets \$20, one caller, I think (\$40 plus \$32. Pot is \$72) Do this for pots that you aren't in. When you are driving, practice this by running through hands you recall, or making hands up, and track the pot in your head. Eventually, it will become second nature, and you will almost always have a sense of how big the pot is.

One of the worst things about live poker. Its pretty easy in cash but I struggle in Live MTTs though once it gets a little deep into the tourney. Especially having to evaluate someones chip size.

With that said, what is your issue with online? Plenty of great places to play for US players. I would steer awatly from ACR/Black Chip because they offer RB and there are lots of grinders compared to recs but Bet Online, Bovada/Ignition have great games. Have tons of them even up to 5/10. Offer fast crypto cash outs or just get a check.

BetOnline has also just recently had a Bad beat jackpot of 500k and 998k hit.
