      Flop: ($0.08) 7, 3, A (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.08) 3 (4 players)
      SB bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, MP1 folds, BU folds.

      River: ($0.24) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.10.

      Final Pot: $0.64.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, five high(4 5).
      SB shows two pairs, aces and threes(J A).

      Hero wins with a straight, five high(4 5).

      I did not have good odds to call the turn I think, however it was more on instinct when I realised I had 8 outs and not four to make the straight. Was it badly played?

      Hello AKM247,

      And welcome to NL BSS section! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      I'd rather just fold it on turn, we can't take that great our implied odds and as well not that great odds either with just GS. We might be even against some stronger hands. But as played the river you could even raise it bigger like $0,40.

      Best regards.
