      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.17, 2 folds, SB calls $0.15, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.39) K, T, Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.26, SB raises to $0.70, Hero calls $0.44.

      Turn: ($1.79) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.65, Hero calls $0.65.

      River: ($3.09) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.90(All-In), Hero calls $2.90.

      Final Pot: $8.89.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a full-house, kings full of queens(Qd Kc).
      Hero shows a straight, king high(Js Jd).

      SB wins with a full-house, kings full of queens(Qd Kc).

      Without the OESD I would have given the hand up after SB's bet on the turn. Probably I've got 8 outs here. Another J might still not have given me the strongest hand on this board.

      I'm not sure if we have enough implied odds here. I would fold flop.

      As played I would definitely fold on the second K on turn, because it's very likely he's on FH or just we are beat...

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      The problem with Calling the flop is that we could already be just against a nut-straight and even if a straight comes for us, we will never know if we get paid if he has like 2pairs or whatsoever. And otherwise I guess I am just folding on turn, as mentioned that we could already be drawing dead.

      Best regards.
