This episode of Mathematics of No Limit Holdem again addresses Pot odds and Implied Odds, and this time introduces Reverse Implied Odds. These concepts are illustrated using hand examples examining preflop, flop and turn play. This video also gives an overview of some valuable software to help determine our pot equity - twodimes.net and pokerstove - and finishes off with some mental shortcuts to help you figure out math at the table.
WiltOnTilt will discuss key concepts related to the mathematics of No-Limit play using Powerpoint. Begin with the basics: probability and pot odds. Then follow Wilt to more advanced arenas: implied odds and reverse implied odds, software tools and mental shortcuts for equity calculations, complex EV calculations, and an exploration of fold equity. And watch this series conclude with a discourse on the ultimate in professional poker math: hand frequencies, valuebetting, and G-bucks.

Hi partytime, thanks for the comments. Hopefully after you watch my videos some of those concepts in NLHE:TAP will make some more sense. If not, please be sure to post any questions in these threads if I'm not explaining something well enough in the video.
This is my first post here on DC and I guess you and this wonderful series deserve it. Thanks for this, I'm learning/refreshing/getting misunderstod concepts corrected a lot.
One thing just caught my eye though:
In the multiway pot example (we have T9spade: in the BB on a ten handed table) where you threw us a "curveball".
First I can proudly say that I got it once you said that there are 36 ways to make overpairs that this cannot be true as we are holding a T and a 9.
So now there's only 30 ways he can make an overpair and 16 ways he can have AK, meaning he will raise 30 out of 46 times as you explain.
However I think it is even slightly worse for us as there is one AK combo (Aspade:Kspade which he will most likely raise aswell making the hands he reises 31.
Alright, I might be nitpicking here and by no means am I critisizing your work. Like I said: great series!!
just caught my eye.
I understood the basics of poker math before, but not as clearly or completely as I do after watching this series. Now I feel confident in my hand analysis where prior to this series it was a struggle for me to "do the math" and feel certain I hadn't made a mistake. Great Video, Wilt! It has inspired me to go back and re-read NL:TAP and ToP armed with my clearer understanding of the concepts.
The Reverse Impled Odds calculation is incorrect. It should be
which is about EV(TT-AA)=13.12
what i am struggeling with:
on the flop you calculate with the *8 rule (2 streets). However, that assumes that you are gonna call the turn as well. You can often expect villain to bet on the turn as well. Lets say 50% of the time. Shouldn't you then use a *6 rule instead of *8 for calculating if you want to continue on the flop with a draw?
