# Pot Odds in No Limit Hold’Em

You can learn how to do this fairly accurately and it involves implied odds, but until you master pot odds and outs you should focus on each section of the hand by itself. Four cards of the same rank, plus any fifth card. Pocket Kings, also known as 'cowboys', are a favourite against any hand except aces. A mistake that many new Texas holdem players make is not learning about odds and pot odds because they're afraid of the math or that it's too hard. However, there is an important concept related to pot odds that needs to be taken into account. As a result, you really only have 6 outs for a nut straight draw.

Texas Hold'em Rules A single card deck is used. All cards count as its poker value. Aces may be high or low. One player is designated as the dealer, usually with a laminated marker.

This person does not have to physically deal the game. However it is important that a symbolic dealer position rotate around the table. The player to the dealer's left must make a "small blind" bet. The player to the left of the small blind must make a "big blind" bet. The amounts of both blinds should be specified in advance. The purpose of the blinds is to get the ball rolling with some money in the pot.

Two cards shall be dealt down to each player, starting with the person to the dealer's left. The player to the left of the big blind must either call or raise the big blind bet. The play in turn will go around the table according to normal poker rules, which I assume the reader already knows. Table rules will specify any limits on the size or number of allowed raises. The small blind may also raise the big blind. If nobody raises the big blind the player making the big blind has the option to raise his own bet.

The term for this is the "big blind option. This is called the "flop. A fourth community card will be dealt face up in the center of the table. This card is called the "turn.

Am I just missing a step?? Call me stupid, or just new at poker, but I don't understand half the stuff you're talking about David, You're absolutely correct. Just an exception or what?
