34✭595✭✭(First i am a percentage type of guy so excuse the math conversion and i hope i don't make it confusing)

But villain is betting a tad less than half pot, for quick mathematic purpose half pot is roughly 3:1 pot odds or in my terms 25%. Now im going to turn into a mathematic geek for a minute so we could come to a solid answer, so please bare with me. Like i said before im a percentage guy so of course I'll have the formula to turn ratio to percentage, but more importantly the reason i do this is because that percentage represents how often we need to be good to make calls. Thats the purpose of pot odds right? So how do we determine how often we need to be good? By realizing our equity. So here is the situation our Equity is as you can see from equilab on this board is really low here with 11% vs his range. So now without implied odds we need to be good here about 25%. Math is below:

3:1 = 25% Equity (You can check this out from your PT4 Database or HEM2 Database in any hand where someone bets half pot)

The math is as follows:

If I bet $2 into $4, then

2/(4+(2*2))=

25%So 1.90 into 4.24 is,

1.90/(4.24+(1.90*2)) =

24%What about implied odds of the entire effective stack?

4.24+3.21 = $7.45

So $1.90 into $7.45 is,

1.90/(7.45+(1.90*2)) =

17%So even with implied odds you need to be good

17%of the time. We are only good 11% here as indicated by Equilab. Very important to grasp this aspect of the game."Its better to give than to receive, so bet more and call less"
