      In freeplay you should tend to play your draws passively... Your odds and pott odds is the main consideration here. I would fold this hand for 3 reasons:

      1) I don`t think we have high chances to get two callers to justify our push and dead money in the pot won`t cover the gap. We need at least 2:1 pot odds to make our move correct.

      2) Fold equity against Button is pretty low.

      3) We haven`t invested anything, but a big blind... so I would give it up

      He also had a pair. Another king only beats him, if opponent has AK, unlikely unraised pot.
      Button might had 2 pair already tho...

      So i think the outs are more than 9 for flush, if not against 2 pair.

      Oh, sorry, i didn`t notice pair of 6's, with two additional outs it seems fine to me.

      Only two additional odds?

      U mean the other two 6s of course, to improve to trips.

      But Can I count the 3 kings either? I think 2 pairs is good at this board too...

      9 outs on flush + 2 outs on trips + 1.5 outs on kings -- it's OK to push because of the dead money in the pot.

      Can you explain the 1.5 outs on kings ? I didn´t get it. Is it discounted outs?

      Yes, you might be up against a made 2 pair Ax, or if at your site, at your level 67 also possible ( this case you are drawing to your kings + flush ).

      Rough discounting. Like there are no outs on kings in particular case or against a set of sevens, but would be full 3 in case of underpair.

      Yes, discounted outs... Against 2 opponents I would agree with Eyeshield77 rough estimations... so we can also count 1.5 of your Kings outs.
