Mathematics and poker – the connection

Some players prefer to avoid thinking about the mathematics behind poker but learning some basic skills in this area could help improve your game.

Poker, like many card games, is a game of chance – but if you can calculate statistical odds, you are more likely to place bets that have a higher percentage of winning and at the same time avoid those hands that are likely to cost you money.

Among the mathematics you can learn to help your online poker game is how to calculate estimated value, which enables you to work out approximately how much each individual play will make – or lose.

Figuring out the pot odds is another way in which you may be able to avoid big losses, by calculating your chances of winning each round and also an estimate of how much money you can make if your odds play out the way you expect them to.
