Is it really 74%? Without bringing out a calculator I could tell you that if we're risking 9 to win 4.5 everyone has to fold 67% for us to break even. Risking 8 only means that they need to fold even less.

Very possible i screwed that up. I suck pretty super hard at math and I did that like 5 times to make sure I was right but it's totally possible im wrong.

The point remains the same, though.

Yeah risking 8 to win 4.5 needs to work 64% of the time or more to be profitable.

8 / (8+4.5) = .64

C / (C+P) I saw this in a video somewhere..

C = Call (or Bet)
P = Pot

8 / (8 + 4.5) = 8 / 12.5 = 0.64 = 64%
9 / (9 + 4.5) = 9 / 13.5 = 0.666667 = 66.7%
10 / (10 + 4.5) = 10 / 14.5 = 0.689 = 68.9%

I tend to use 10 bb.. not sure if that's bad lol.

10bb IP is kinda big, use <= 3x when IP (no reason to risk more), and >=3 when OOP (you want to give him worse odds when you're OOP)
