Types of Poker Odds

Implied Odds. Sometimes, players disregard what’s in the pot and make a loose call. This happens when a player figures he will win more than what’s in the pot in the rare event that he actually hits a hand. Takes a bit of risk and cunning but in high-stakes, no-limit games, this is where a daredevil of a player can win an opponents entire stack in poker tournaments.

Despite the math involved, odds are just that – percentages and probabilities. Playing poker is ultimately a judgment call. Poker out, odds and strategy are tools to be used to make sound judgments.
