      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, Villain calls $0.02, fold, BB checks

      I have nice OESD + flush draws, but do I really have the odds to call with such an over raise?

      You are not drawing to nuts, maybe You are drawing dead already -> easy fold

      You are drawing either 2nd flush or nutstraight. You have almost 50percent to draw it into 2 cards. However you should discount a few outs because of the possibility of your opponent playing this with a ace of diamonds and a pair, or with a set (which has full/quads outs against your draw). A call is nevertheless good in my opinion. If your opponent is aggressive enough a call might be good I think. The only problem is that your draw is easily readable on that board... A reraise is not really possible since you will only get called by a set imo.

      Hello dondiego2000,

      Since we wont get much value from him on turn if we even do hit the flush and he doesn't have a strong hand, I see us not getting the correct implied odds. Therefore fold it on flop.

      Best regards.
