      River: ($2,51) 9:club: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2,51

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a full-house, aces full of queens (Ac Qh)
      Hero shows (As Ks)

      MP3 wins with a full-house, aces full of queens (Ac Qh)

      Is my play on the turn right? I called his min-raise because I have 10 outs to full-house or 4ofakind and I might even be ahead versus 55 or Ax.

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, overall I doubt that this kind of play is way off here. With the odds he is giving us shouldn't be a huge problem. But the question is if we can count our all outs as very clean outs? I mean we could be against AQ already.

      Best regards.

      Mmmm, that's a good point. How can I make a decision on the turn then?

      I'll try to reason myself. If I consider AQ then I have 3 outs (3 K). Against A5 I have 6 outs (3 K, 3 Q). Against a flush and other full-houses (QQ, 55) I have 10 outs. But a flush is very unlikely, because of his preflop play. I can only think of K:diamond: J:diamond: and K:diamond: T:diamond: .

      I've calculated the equity on the turn against this range.

      Board:

      Equity Win Tie
      MP3 56.73% 48.15% 8.59% QQ, 55, A8s+, A5s, KdJd, KdTd, ATo+, A5o
      CO 43.27% 34.68% 8.59% AsKs

      I have to pay $0.48 to win $2.03. I need 23.64% equity, so if I'm not mistaken it's a call.

      What do you think? Thank you!
