Can A Poker Odds Calculator Really Help You Win?

Aug 17, 2007
During your online poker playing career there will be times during a game of hold em that you will look at your hole cards and will not be sure what to do. You will ask yourself, should I bet? Shoud I call? Should I raise? Can a poker odds calculator really help you make these decisions?

Difficult decisions like this occur on both sides of flop. Great hole cards can be absolutely neutralized by a poor flop. On the other hand, cards that did not look very powerful can turn into an unbeatable hand if the flop comes up your way.

Then there are always those in-between hands. These are the hands that can go in any direction at any point in the game. With so many options and so many different possibilities, you again find that you keep asking yourself "do you hold, or do you fold?"

Texas Holdem is all about taking risks, but the smart player only takes a risk when it makes the most sense.
A good odds calculator can help you make smart decisions and provide objective, real time odds based on the cards that are showing on the table and the hole cards in your hand.

A good odds calculator will quickly assess what is going on during the hand of Holdem and deliver advice on what to do next based on mathematical calculations of your chances of victory. This advice is supported with a ton of data that will help a player decide for themselves what to do next.

If you decide to use an odds calculator when playing online Texas Holdem, look for an odds calculator that gives you the number of outs available to help your hand, the rank of your hand, the percent chances of a win/split as opposed to the chances of your opponents, and the percent chances of hitting a specific hand.

The most appealing aspects of an odds calculator will be how user friendly it is. You should be able to use it seamlessly while playing at your favorite online poker room. The odds calculator should do the rest once it has attached. It should read the hands, adjust its advice as each card is shown, and all you need to do at this point is take the advice that is offered to you. A good odds calculator is simply that easy.

If you are serious about playing poker online, a poker odds calculator is an essential tool in your poker playing arsenal. While nothing can remove the threat of random luck, or help if an opponent holds on to get a fortunate draw on the river, a good poker odds calculator will consistently put a player in a better position to win more often.

This will, of course, result in more pots and bigger online paydays for the internet player. When playing online poker a poker odds calculator is less of a luxury and more of a necessity.
