      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4:heart: , 4:club:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.04, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.04, CO folds, BU raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.11, BB folds, MP1 raises to $0.54 (All-In), MP3 folds, BU calls $0.42, Hero folds.

      Flop: ($1.26) Q:heart: , J:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      Turn: ($1.26) 6:club:
      River: ($1.26) 4:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $1.26

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a flush, king high (Kd Qd)
      BU shows (Ts Td)

      MP1 wins with a flush, king high (Kd Qd)

      This is more a question of how I would go about calculating if I have the right odds to call this. I tried working it out and got as far as I trying to work out if the chances of hitting a set were enough to call this (I though they could have any higher pair or AJ+ etc.

      Thanks, hope its not too long trying to explain the odds stuff. But would really appreciate a detailed response as I have already read a few articles on this and don't fully get it :(

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Actually those odds we can Call more often implied odds and they are calculated and hopefully I did understand correctly that you asked if you can Call the 3bet since you can't Call the 4bet but the calculation goes like this:

      [It's the amount in the pot (without your call) + villain's remaining effective stack] : the amount to call

      Example: (0,23 + 0,81) : 0,11 = 1,04 : 0,11 = 9,46:1.

      Your odds to hit the set on the flop are 7,5:1.

      Therefore we can say that the Call was correct as the result that you will get his stack postflop.

      Best regards.
