      Was a little on tilt at this point in my session, every time I had hit someone else had hit bigger & I was feeling sorry for myself :rolleyes:

      Anyway, with gutshot straight draw & flush draw I made what is a *very* marginal call on the turn, bad call given the odds (assumed I could get his whole stack if I hit, perhaps not a great assumption but he seemed pot committed)?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: , J:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BU folds, SB calls $0.06, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.21) K:heart: , 9:spade: , 4:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, SB folds, BB calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.49) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.49, Hero calls $0.49.

      River: ($1.47) A:heart: (2 players)
      BB raises $0.53 (All-In), Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.47

      imo cbet is okay, turn is interesting though
      i don't think that it's a bad assumption that he's going to stack off any river since he seems so strong and so showdown bound, so let's calculate our needed equity to breakeven assuming he goes broke on any r

      like 1/4 ~ 25%

      so well, considering that flushdraw+gs draw has like 3:1 odds considering 1 card to come, i guess the call is not THAT bad as it looks, but it's still just like breakeven though..
      variance spot :f_p:

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Ain't a very good idea to Call the turn since our implied odds ain't that great. Myself I would just lay it down rather than go for a Call. In long run we will rather loose money in that spot. Of course we can assume that we will get paid. But now again he doesn't have much left either. If he had more of a stack left then sure why not. But with the rake we will at the best be at break-even.

      Best regards.
