Pot Equity. I don't get it. What is it?
I have an open ended straight draw, say, 5:1 odds of making it. $200 in the pot = $40 pot equity. What does that mean? Now what?
If someone bets $30 I call?
If someone bets $20 I raise to $40?
I don't understand.

actually, if you flop an OESD, you have about a 32% chance on making it by the river.

So, 32% of the pot is yours. That is your equity.

It is much more applicable to limit than NL in my opinion. It NL you need a much bigget hand, like

:ah :kh

on a flop of :jh :9d :6h before PE really affects your decisions.

YO HOMIES
If you are 6 handed and you get AA, and you all have $100 stack, would you push it pf if you know they'll all call?

of course, its +EV,

With each player, your EV increase, but so does the variance.

What do you want? More profit or a sure thing?

first, I would be in a hand with me yearly income, and If I was, It would be because I have now taken it from the others at the table.

Yes, I would still push with AA. If not, then there isnt any point in me playing is there?
