      I am now back to NL10 because the effect on my BR of the downswing I am in dictated that I do so.

      Here is a hand for discussion

      Poker Stars
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.05/$0.10
      8 players
      Converter

      Pre-flop: (8 players) Hero is BB with 6 5
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, 2 folds, CO calls, Button folds, SB calls, Hero checks.

      Flop: 7 Q 8 ($0.4, 4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.3, CO calls, SB calls, Hero folds.

      Results:
      Final pot: $1.3

      I folded because I gave myself 6 outs (8 for the OESD minus the 9s and the 4s which completes the flush draw). Is this correct?

      In the chart for "odds of hitting a hand" it is obvious that if you are getting the pot odds to call on the flop then you do so because in the long run it is profitable.

      However because as SSS players we are therefore all in preflop or on the flop, do we use the column for "odds from flop to river" with respect to our implied odds when making a decision to go all in on the flop against multiple opponents?
