### Mathematics of NL Hold'em: Episode Three by WiltOnTilt

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.

#### About Mathematics of NL Hold'em

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.

This series needs more love imo. My only complaint besides the pages on pages of notes I wrote down is the fact that this wasn't done before I read NLHE:TAP about 800 times and some things still don't make sense lol. Thank you for doing this.

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.

Regards,

Nice video, but ... what you really know about math?

I really liked the example with the reverse implied odds. I aways struggle on how best to take that into account.

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.

Great series, this is stuff I kinda knew but now I know it properly.

I don't have the "winning %" button on PT though? I have a check box "Win %" and if I check it, it displays the % chance of winning underneath the players' names.

Gotcha, it's possible you have a different version of PT than i had when making the video series. Either way as long as you can get a hold of he win % that's the important thing.

For these Math-oriented series', which are basically lecture-style with power-point slides, would it be possible to upload files other than video? Powerpoint, .txt, etc? To go along with the video, not replace it. Thanks.

Covered this in a few other threads, but there's no plan to release the powerpoint file I used to make the series. Sorry guys.

Bugger. I was hoping that the WoTs answer would be the opposite for us ducklings!

The Reverse Impled Odds calculation is incorrect. It should be
EV(TT-AA)=(1/2*[-279.23]-61.13+86.59+86.59+86.59)/4.5

or

EV(TT-AA)=(3*[-279.23]+6*[-61.13]+18*86.59)/27

which is about EV(TT-AA)=13.12

good point!

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?
