Pot Odds

Pot Odds. This is a ratio referring to the amount of money in the pot over the amount you need to make a call. For example, if the pot has $200 and you need $10 to call, the pot odd is 200:10 or 20:1. This simply means you receive $20 if you win and pay $1 if you lose. A higher rate is better. This is generally used to determine whether the long run is profitable or not.
Professional poker players will usually play in International Poker Tournaments.
