      Given the good odds and position, calling is fine. I also like you line postflop, but I think I could not resist in making a thin value bet on the river.

      preflop is okay. but i think there is a small valuebet on the river. so i would bet there about 2,5$.
      He would bet a K oder better hands on the flop/turn/river.. The only hand he would play c/c on the river, which is beating you is AT and perhaps he calls a smaller T (JT/T9 or even a 8/7).

      But QTs was suited and there were two limpers and I had position:D . Anyway SB raised small and I should call because of the pot odds. [/quote]pot odds preflop,
      i have heard it mentioned before, but as far as i know the strategy articles dont mention this. where can i find info on this?

      There's no article about it. Pot odds is just a figure specifying your risk-reward scenario: how much you need to pay to get a chance to win a pot of a specific size. For instance, in this hand you need to call additional 30 cent, but the pot is already 1,10$, so you're getting little less 4:1. Further, you are last to act (no reraise preflop is possible!), you have postflop position and your hand has a good playability. That's why I'd play the hand. If I'm the BB, I'd fold after the SB raise as I don't know if a reraise follows after I call and I also don't know how many other players call. Further, I have no more position in this hand which makes pot control and value extraction more difficult.
