in CORE
\$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

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

Flop: (\$0.32, 3 players)
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?

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)
