      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 7:heart: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, fold

      Flop: ($0.18, 2 players) 6:heart: 8:heart: Q:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.13, SB raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.47

      SB bets $0.66 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.66

      River: ($2.70, 2 players) 5:club:

      SB shows J:spade: Q:spade: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 46%, Flop 53%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows 7:heart: A:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 54%, Flop 47%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins $2.57

      Can I call his Raise?
      My thought was that with implied odds it was okay.. I was expecting to get the rest of his stack if I hit.

      The main problem is his range. You didn't give us any info on villain. So as unknown, his range will be QQ+, 88, 66, Qx+and maybe some suited kings. You need to win in 50% of the cases since u have 2:1 chances to complete the flush until the river. With that range, you will win in 43% of the cases. If you remove hands like some weak Qs, QQ+ (hands without cold call preflop, but that depends on the villain), you will get around 41%. So in my opinion, fold is a better option in the long run.

      Hello StraGus,

      You can't Call the flop while you don't get the implied odds. :( Should be Bet/Fold vs such a raise.

      Best Regards.
