Understanding Poker Odds
By: AMANDA STARKS

So, you have heard of poker odds, you have even seen them, but do you really understand what they mean? When you see 2:1, 7:1, 9:1, what do these numbers mean to you and how can they help you in the game of poker. Well, these are your odds. These numbers tell you how much you stand to win or lose essentially.

In other words, if you see the numbers 2:1 in any poker game, this tells you a few things. First, it tells you that if you win, the house will owe you two, if you lose, you owe the house two. Now you are probably asking two or one what? Well, money. Not two dollars or one dollar. Instead, this signifies that if you win, the house will pay you two times your bet, if you lose, you will pay the house your original bet.

Simple enough isn't it? So in other words, if on a poker hand you are betting $10, if you lose, you pay the house that $10. If you win, the house will pay you $20, in additional to your original bet. Therefore, if you win, you have just made $30, which is your original $10, plus the $20 you have won from the house.

Poker odds are easy enough to understand once you get the basics down. So the first number in the odds is what the house will pay you, the second is what you will pay the house. So, if the odds are 6:1, the house pays you six times the amount you bet, if you are the winner. If you are the loser, you will pay the house your original bet. If you pay $20 and you win, you will win $120, plus your original bet, so essentially $130. If you lose, you will simply lose your original bet.

Understanding poker odds is an essential element to playing poker. Knowing what you stand to win or lose can help you in choosing the right game for you to play, rather in an online casino or offline, land based casino. At any rate, now that you know about poker odds, you are walking into any casino with important knowledge and can take comfort in knowing that you are one step closer to mastering the game of poker.
