      The pot is approx 1$.
      Seeing it is your first hand you know nothing about your opponent. He could have two connected Diamonds or Ax with the Ace of diamonds. Of course he could have hit a set or a double pair as well. Or he could simply have nothing.

      First hand wihtout any Info on how he plays I would probably fold. In a tournament I would probably call, all sort of depends on how I feel aswell, but I admit I don´t like first hands.

      eeeeeeeasy call! If he had 2 pair, he played Q4 or Q2 or 42, so most likely hes on a draw, and thinks he can semibluff you out, or he has Aq and is a total donk. I would call this any day on that limit. And btw, raise to 50cts (40cts + 10 cts per limper) next time.

      easy call. soo easy.
      you have a overpair and a Diamond redraw. just against AA with a diamond, or a floped Ahigh flush you are in bad shape

      ty for your answers,

      to helemaalnicks, I think every player, who isnt a donk should probably fold Q4, Q2 or 42 after my raise (many players should not play these starting hand, I think so), for that reason I think, he had not hand like these. You are right, that the raise was too small, that was a mistake, regardless he should call as well I think so.

      to Nanouk, thank for your answer especially and I identify with it most close, regardless I made a call and result of this hand is bottom this message :)

      to Peter87, I have this words on mymind if I made a call - I have a overpair and a Diamond redraw, but I was behind on the flop. And dont worry about your english, is quite good, better than my ;)

      well, look the result of this hand, here is :

      arpinoSK calls [$9.45 USD]
      ** Dealing Turn ** [9h]
      ** Dealing River ** [4s]
      ebfex shows [5d,6d]a flush, Queen high.
      arpinoSK shows [Kd,Ks]two pairs, Kings and Fours.
      ebfex wins $18.86 USD from the main pot with a flush, Queen high.

      Well, he had a suited connectors and flush and simultaneously inside str8 flush draw on the flop.
