      I know this hand is really an auto-fold, but it made me wonder about playing in position.

      Are there enough implied odds to make a call in this situation, maybe not for this hand specifically, but lets say J9s or TJs or a nice draw hand. Can this be smooth-called in position with enough implied odds to take the pot with a bluff depending on flop texture?

      Any advice really that pertains to playing on the button with marginal/decent hands would be helpful.

      Cheers!

      personally I don't get imvolved at all you want to be the preflop aggressor and in this situation you aren't.

      Okay, I thought I posted the wrong hand for this example... thought it was a cash game.

      The question isn't specific to this situation, in fact it's more applicable to cash game play. I'm just curious as to what type of implied odds you get from calling a standard raise when you're in position with a good draw hand....
