Fold Equity – PPP #60

Fold equity refers to the equity that you gain from your opponent folding. But how do you calculate it? That’s what the team discuss in this episode of the Postflop Poker Podcast. If you want to try your hands at calculating fold equity, there is a great tool you can use for that over at Red Chip Poker.

We also welcome a new patron, Brannen Hough. He is our first gold patron and gets a bunch of cool rewards. To become a patron yourself, check out Our stratchat hand (17:45) comes from our patron Grant Thomas, where he makes an interesting bluff on the river.
