Pot Odds - 2 Overcards

PajoryanPajoryan Red Chipper Posts: 64 ✭✭
$0.05 NL - Holdem - 8 players

UTG+1: $4.95
MP: $6.00
MP+1: $5.20
CO: $1.60
BTN: $3.55
SB: $5.00
Hero (BB): $10.76
UTG: $4.89

SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has :Kc:Qc

fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.10, fold, fold, CO calls $0.10, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.05

Flop: ($0.32, 3 players) :3D::6C::4C:
Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, CO bets $0.10, fold, fold

Just want to make sure my pot odds calculations and math is correct here:

Preflop:
Pot offers me 5.4:1 on a call so i make the call.

Flop:
Lets just assume my 6 outs on the flop are clean, I have 24% equity in this hand which equates to 3:1.
Pot is offering me 4:1.
So a call is +EV

Correct or no?

    What about the other 9 flush outs?

    But how much ?
    And how could we increase it ?

    I make it:
    EV = (0.24 x 0.42) - (0.76 x 0.10) = 0.0248

    And how could we increase it ?

    I don't know. By raising?

    Now you've to refine your 24%. How do you get 24% ? Open Flopzilla/equilab/similar and see exactly what is your equity (in different scenarii)

    I got 24% by assuming the 3 remaining Ks & Qs would improve my hand. 6 outs by 4 = 24%.

    According to equilab i have a 32% equity share against the top 10% of villains hands.

    So I guess i'm having a hard time figuring out how to interpret these 2 numbers. I'm new to poker and suck at math.... a bad combo.....

    New a poker we all were once.
    But math... you gotta open your book again: poker is 90% math and 10% crying over bad beats. Psychology will help you (getting tells etc.) but only up to a point.
    (But it's no difficult math: if you finished high school you will be alright)
