      There goes a very longshot. Is it profitable?

      No Limit Hold'em
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      Stacks
      Hero: $39.45
      MP2: $15.20

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is UTG+1 with 8 :heart: 9 :heart:
      1 fold, Hero calls, UTG+2 raises to $0.75, 1 fold, 1 call, 2 folds, SB calls, BB folds, Hero calls.

      I was OOP, but there were a few callers so I decided to see the flop.

      Flop: J :diamond: 7 :spade: Q :spade: ($3.25, 4 players)
      1 check, Hero bets $2.80, 1 fold, MP2 calls, 1 fold

      I know, I know, a very longshot for that T, even better if it's not the T :spade: . But If I made my draw it would be a very unlikely draw and I could end up stacking someone, or maybe win the pot right there. But I've been thinking. Would this bet here be profitable in the long run?

      Turn: T :club:( $8.85, 2 players)
      Hero bets $6, MP2 raises to $11.65 and is all-in, Hero calls 5.65

      Miracle T... and it's not a spade. No more comments.

      River: T :spade:( $32.15, 2 players)

      Dude, another T?? One was enough! :D

      Open fold PF. As played it might just about be OK to call the raise if enough of your opponents have full-stacks as UTG+2 could have a decent hand and your bet closes the action PF.

      The flop is an easy c/f since your draw is worth very little. You could even be drawing dead on this flop. This is a very bad spot to be bluffing.

      I only called preflop because not only my call closes the action preflop, but there were already 3 players to see the flop, it was not much more to call and see the flop, and the other players had decent stacks, MP2 had $15.20 and the other two guys had more than a full buy-in. So I figure I got decent implied odds to call here.

      As for my play post-flop, well, very unconventional :D

      I usually don't do it, but since I did it. I'd like to know if it can be profitable.

      preflop call is okay, but flop is c/f. Your move just burns money.
