MDF and Fold Equity – Are they really useful?
Previously, I have discussed Minimum Defense Frequency MDF and I have discussed Fold Equity. Let's bring them together. They work best together.
Please forgive a little math. Alpha is how often you need to fold in order for a given bluff to break even. Alpha + MDF = 1. So if your MDF is 67% then your Alpha is 33%. Always a sum of 1.
If your opponent makes a pot size bet then they need a Fold Equity of 33% to break even. You must defend 67% of the time. 1 – .33 = .67.
So what are some of the practical uses?
1. Defending against steals.
2. Defending against C-Bets.
3. Defending against buff raises.
4. Defending against re-steals.
5. Anytime that your opponent raises, keep this in mind.
I will be adding details in a future post.
