What are your odds of winning a pre flop all in if there are more than 2 people all in? Is it the same, I guess not??

Absolutely the most comprehensive 45 minutes of poker instruction I have seen since I started playing poker 20 years ago. Now I need to think of the best questions I can ask you. Keep it up! Cheers!
Comment from : Calvin Seetin

At 40:00, if calling $25 into a pot of $125 after the opponent raises, wouldn't that be $150/$25, giving you 6 to 1 pot odds?

Hold Your Breath
There is a problem with the Breakeven success rate formula. The problem is that half of the pot is already your money, so if you bet the pot you are risking 100 to win 50, the other 50 in the pot are from you, so that needs to be adjusted in the calculation.

Would you adapt the math for MTTs ? Especially in turbos, I think bluffing comes at a higher price since there is usually less room for bluffing without directly risking a 25-50% of your stack. So, how does the math change taking the importance of stack protection into account? Or at least, getting comfortable with being aggressive and losing many MTTs in cases of failed bluffs. Especially in the later states of the tournament, the progress you made becomes more valuable.

Hey Evan I got a question. Is it true that the calculation of the BESR and Pot odds look the same but have different outcome? or am I doing it wrong?
I'll give you an example how I did this, the pot is 100 and we face a bet of 25

BERS: 25/(25+100) = 1/5 or 20%
Pot odds: (100+25)/25 = 5:1 or 16.66%

Oscar Lindström
(34:38) How is it possible to have a 37.0% chance of improving a set with a pocket pair on the flop, when you only 7 outs? The rule of 4 and 2 would suggest that the chances of improving such a hand must be somewhere about 28% (7*4=28)???

why is it easier to make a flush than straight? 35% vs 31%. shouldnt the better hand be harder to hit?

MC Alleycat
10:34 "When someone takes an aggressive action before the flop, they usually follow it up with an aggressive action before the flop." Wow, that sounds really dumb. Just one example of how you need to have an understanding of the triple threat concept before you watch this confusing video, in order to understand this confusing video. Another example is his use of the phrase "behind you" in that sentence at 7:53. I have no idea if this means after your turn, or before your turn, or "behind you" as in they have a worse hand than yours, or even something else. As well he says "real hand," which I think means a good hand, but I don't know for sure. Maybe someone could clarify for me, because I would like to know.
Comment from : MC Alleycat

I play freerolls and always lose in suckout or I play aggressive and lose half my chips in 2-3 hands as everyone just calls any damn raise. What can I do. If I play aggressive ...some idiot will call with 36o and hit a damn straight. How can I play small ball when ppl have nothing to lose and call anything and everything.

Thank you for sharing this important information. Even though I find it intimidating, I am now applying the dynamic duo: postion&agression. Indeed with big hands I am getting paid more often than previously.

P.s. I am also reading your chapter in the book Excelling at No-Limit Holdem by Jonathan Little. Great stuff!

Comment from : stephen anderson

Comment from : comicmartusa

Simply Human
it seems that for the agressive strategy to work, the hero would have to always do same thing with same cards. Example, always go all in when you flop straight flush (SF) draw, no exception. If you did not go all in with SF draw some times and randomly win more small pots but other times went all in on SF draw then randomly lost some of those, doesn't that screw up your odds of winning long term. It seems you would have to win higher percentage of the small pots to balance the losses on big pots. Is this correct?
Comment from : Simply Human

Simply Human
it might be easier to learn if you standardized the stats so they can easily be compared for better analysis. For example: pot odds 3:1, odds to improve hand 4:1, odds of winning 9:1. it is confusing to hear 75 percent, then hear three out of four then see 75/25.

Rick Jankowski
My question is a hand that I just had and not sure if I made the right call. Please help.
My hand A7 first flop is JJ3 I am the second to last better and l get a all in call so I fold. thinking she has a J, giving her, 3 of a kind to my JJ in the flop and an A in my hand. Last better calls .Well come to find out she was bluffing and an A shows up on the river. si I would of won. Did I make the right call of should I have went all in?

Comment from : Rick Jankowski

dustin tompkins
At 40:25 you say 5-1 is +16% equity then say 4-1 is 20% equity and 3-1 is 25% equity....I don't understand your math. 4-1 is 25%. 4/1=.25. See...I don't understand....

Neill Aarons
you mentioned that Pairs and High Cards ie A10 might make better hands one on one, but if 4 or 5 people are seeing the flops, you have better equity if you are on a draw. Also, you mentioned that Equity at the Beginning of the hand isnt the same as at the end of the 7 cards.... But how often are you betting the Turn and River with more than one or two other players? as you bet the Turn, arent you still weeding out weaker hands and, as such, creating a one-on-one or 3 way pot? and (sorry for the compound question,) since going for 3 of a kind or 2 pair is masked better, and if you have a draw and the draw comes in, you're likely to get paid Less when you get there...unless you've been double barreling like a semi bluff........Your thoughts?
Comment from : Neill Aarons

Thanks for the lesson.
Comment from : samgaita

do you take in to consideration the rake when calculating pot odds?

Obviously in a home game with no rake If I'm getting the right odds to call it's a no brainer, but if the rake at the casino or online site bring me below the odds to required should I then fold? In other words when there is a rake should I be looking for slightly better odds than I would when there is no rake?

Wow, thanks for the Video and very easy to understand why, when, how much! Now i have a "real reason" to call, fold or check. I am really happy and looking forward to train before next time i play.
Comment from : LLPorti

I suck in position. But I always destroy iout of position. I guess I´m backwards or being a LAG is better when out of position.
Comment from : DiorPaint

Chad K
thing about position... most pros understand that people play loose in late position and tighter in early position, therefore it seems that when raising from middle position and especially in early position, with a hand like 9-10s, it's given much more credit than a raise from late position. people just tend not to believe you when you're on the button. Just like how alot of people tend to assume the blinds have rags in tournaments.
Comment from : Chad K

Freddy McGaughey
If you dont like math you should skip poker.... lol
Comment from : Freddy McGaughey

I don't understand how like 4:1 represents 20% equity why doesn't it represent 25% equity? isnt the formula 1/4? and i don't understand how 3:1 represent 25% equity but not 33%... Could you maybe explain this to me ? :D

Maran Nebbeling
Pretty sick that AA vs KK has the same odds as KK vs 72.
Comment from : Maran Nebbeling

Let's say im in a 9-handed game, i get heads up in a pot and bluff my opponent out on the turn he holds AhQd and i have 8c5s. Flop was K69 one diamond and turn is 2 of diamonds. im struggeling with calculating his equity and therefore the net. gain cause i can hit 10 cards to win and he can hit 18 i think because you start with 52 cards -4flop - 2 burn - 18 hole cards(14mucked) so if there are 28 cards left before the river am i right for assuming his equity is 36% ?? or am i doing it wrong ?
Comment from : J B

Marius van Gent
Dear Gripsed or other people watching this video in 2016,

Aren't the odds in the table at 34:00 a bit too low?
When having 9 outs, the chance of hitting an out is 9/(52-5)+9/(52-6), which is 38,7%,
while on this table it says the chance provides you a chance of only 35,0%
The same thing applies to the other equities.
Please tell me if I'm wrong or made a mistake in my calculation.

Why does a straight flush draw have 15 outs? Wouldn't have either 4 or 8 depending on if its a gut shot draw or open ended?
Comment from : InternetCannonFodder

naihanchin Kempo
on the Math Pot odds devide your call into the pot drawing odds look up the rule of 4 and 2 which is Outs times 4 plus 1 0r 2 and 2 times outs times 1 or 2 9 outs X 2 =18+1 is 19% 4 outs X2=8 +1 9% they need to equil each other or be cheaper on the call
Comment from : naihanchin Kempo

This is awesome for a beginner like me. So much of the poker stuff assumes you know all these basic concepts, or is just way obvious.One thing I don't understand (probably shows my level)--if you have a flush draw with one card to come, why aren't the odds 1/4 or 25%? I assume its something to do with known dead cards, but I don't know why the other unknown dealt hands mean any given card is still one in four to be a given suit.

Buta Dan
Hi i am a begginer in poker for now,i only play with my friends ,and they are also begginers.The 2 problems i get and i don't know how to solve it is almost all the time they call the blind if nobody raise it pre flop,they rarely fold,the second one is that each time i want to raise to make them fold they still call even when they have J 4 off and sometimes we reach the showdown and they have the stronger hand..... So what i'm trying to say is how much should i raise if my stack size is around 500 and the bb is 10? or how i should approch the situation?
Comment from : Buta Dan

Dimitris Kontoleon
Ok i just have a Question. Flush and straight draw vs hi set. is litle down.

E.G AA VS JQ and flop A 10 9 with FLUSH draw you still have 42,12 % change of win. or 40,61 if the ace have the some flush with other 2

So what is mathimatical the max pot odd call with this hand( all in on frop by aces)

Even if have hand like 22 vs JQ with 2 10 9 down is steal 58-42 favore from set... 
But i need the mathimatical correct pot odds if all in set on flop

If i am not so wrong even if he bet DOUBLE the pot you have a profit call.
1+2=3 pot down. you risk 2 pot, so is 3/5 pot= 40%. = at least to call...

with excel i see that (if i am no wrong) that 2,16 pot pet is good in any case (40,60%) and 2,67 pot(42,11%) if opponent Does not have double flush draw.


Comment from : Dimitris Kontoleon

Larry Brinkley
Evan, quick question...might seem elementary. If player bets, and I call, isn't he or she required to show me their cards? Am I required to show them mine, if they show and have me beat? Please and thanks in advance. 
Comment from : Larry Brinkley

Larry Brinkley
Thanks, looking forward to using these strategies
Comment from : Larry Brinkley

Hi Evan. Thanks for all your videos, think they are great. Just a quick question. Early on in the video you said that a player will miss the flop 50% of the time yet when you do the odds of flopping something (around 31 mins) you say there is a 33% chance of flopping a pair? Is the other 17% a person flopping draws?
Comment from : brookie73

How do you use pot odds for calling on the flop when you are going to face more betting on the turn and different pot odds there?
(Is pot odds on the flop meaningless?)

Comment from : joewildcat100

This whole aggressive play thing, wouldn't you need a somewhat big stack to do this? Or can a short stack still apply this type of pressure?

Comment from : Jaimen Perez

Hugh Jainus
30:45 - I think that Straight Draw doesn't necessarily has to have 8 outs, it's pretty common sense that you can have a straight draw with a 1 card gap OR when your straight is lowest or highest. For example you have A3, the board is 24J, you have 4 outs and that are 5 of each suit. There are only 8 outs of you have an open straight draw such as 89TJ, where the outs are Q of each suit and 7 of each suit, 2 cards times 4 suits = 8 outs. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks
Comment from : Hugh Jainus

fuck that A4
that's the hand that always kills my JJ/QQ/KK

Comment from : Gripsed Poker Training - Evan Jarvis

Is there any tool i can use to practice calculating equity and pot odds.  There isnt time to calculate this stuff while playing in a game.  you have ten seconds to look at your position, your information the opponents give you, your equity, and your pot odds before your automatically folded.  I just dont know how someone can calculate all this stuff in the middle of play without knowing it backwards and forwards from the start.

This is such an important video for everybody who truly wants to understand what this game is really all about. Need to work on paying more attention to my position, though I have the feeling that i'm already doing that pretty well intuitively. Got that aggression and selection thing checked for the most part, too. Evan, I love your videos! Such a great job you do and you've already helped me a lot. Thanks for that.

Michel Charbonnier
Hey Evan, I have question for you: I'm right now kinda "practicing" on play money NLHE tables, and there are a lot of annoying donkeys shovin All-In with basically any given 2 cards in any hand. I use to buy in around 200 BB. So what is the best way to play against such players in the future? I know I have to be more paitent in waiting on good cards to call their shoves, but what kind of cards should I play here? Should I call with, lets say, 22 or A4 off? or JT?
