      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (3 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (SB) ($4.02)
      BB ($4.12)
      Button ($4.70)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 10, J
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.10, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.24) 2, 8, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, BB raises $0.36, Hero calls $0.21

      Turn: ($0.96) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.69, Hero calls $0.69

      River: ($2.34) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.36, Hero calls $1.36

      Total pot: $5.06

      My main question here is, did I have the implied odds to call the turn? Paying 69c into a $1.75 pot is about 2.5 to 1, and I only had 12 hard outs. And then when I make top pair on the river, is it worth calling? Should I have folded, or even bet instead?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Well, if we count our FD+GS outs as clean then sure why not to Call. Although I don't like the idea of Calling the river. :P If you can't lay down your TP type of hand then rather just fold it right on turn. I doubt that any worse hand is going to bet on river for value.

      Best Regards.
