SB (\$3.09)
BB (\$13.56)
UTG (\$10)
UTG+1 (\$7.66)
Hero (\$14.64)
BTN (\$15.09)

Dealt to Hero J K

UTG raises to \$0.30, UTG+1 calls \$0.30, fold, fold, fold, fold

UTG: 28/21/1.7, cbet 50, WTS 28, 163 hands

UTG+1: 45/11/1.9

BTN: 17/7
SB: 46/18
BB 15/11/0.6 65 hands

Can I call there for flushdraw? BTN is tight pasive, probably he will fold most often so I will have a position.

Hello SPeedFANat1c,

Actually it should be doable, of course you have to be cautious postflop and not play just for like TP or whatsoever. Also you are able to hit straights as well. Plus we have positions on them. Although it also depends how good you playing such hands in calling pots, you could for example check your database for that. If not that good then rather just fold it.

Best regards.

Can you explain this in pottodds or implied pottodds.

I say we have asbout 3:1 in implied pottodds here. But are our odds really that good?

90+65=155
155-30= 125
125:30
4.16667..:1

Pot = 0,75
To Call = 0,3

Equity needed: To_Call/(Pot+Call) = 0,3/1,05 = ~28,6%

And now go play around with equilator and see what kind of equity we get against them 3. We need 28,6%. Just have to be sure that you don't do mistake postflop. Also we could take a lot more things into consideration not only the equity, therefore I see that the Call is totally doable, if we can play our hand postflop perfectly but I wouldn't advice that for beginners since they often tend to overplay their TP type of hands.
