Holdem Blackjack – Pot Odds and Probabilities

Elvis Elvis

To convert pot odds into % probabilities:

(loss/(win+loss))*100 = % probability

For example, let’s say you have to call 100 to stay in a hand that currently has a pot of 400. You will be getting 4-to-1 pot odds. So the formula would look like this:

(100/(400+100))*100 = 20%.

To convert % probabilities into pot odds:

(1-probability)/probability = pot odds

For example, you want to know the pot odds for 15%. The formula would look like this:

(1-0.15)/0.15 = 5.67-to-1
