      HI everyone
      im new to this site and havent so far played about 2200 hands on titan.

      Was just wandering if you could comment wether or not I should call on the river of this hand..

      SB: $21,74

      Hero: $1,85

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, SB calls $0,35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0,90) 5, 5, Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,60, SB calls $0,60.

      Turn: ($2,10) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2,10) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0,50, Hero calls $0,50.

      Final Pot: $3,10

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and fives (Jd Js)
      SB shows a full-house, queens full of fives (Qd Qc)

      SB wins with a full-house, queens full of fives (Qd Qc)

      I thought that since he checked on the turn that he's just trying to steal the pot on the river.
      and I thought that his chances are to hit the pot 1in 3 times and that for me the pot odds are around 1 to 5 so that it would be worth it to call ( is this correct ?)

      would you guys call or fold ?
