as a beginner, what should i concentrate on when it comes to poker math? i know basic odds, but i'm sure i don't make the most use of them in real situations. how could i use, for example, TTH to help improve this aspect of my game? all comments are always appreciated. thanks a lot.

I would concentrate on counting the pot. Knowing the odds of making your draw is useless unless you know what odds the pot is offering.

Some people count dollars and some people count bets. You need to figure out what works for you and practice until it becomes second nature. At any given point you should know how much is in the pot.

It is good practice to count the pot even when you are not in the hand.
