      BB = 29/22/inf/50 in 41 hands

      Is it ok to call the raise on the flop and try to hit my flush on the turn with about 1:2,5 pot odds?

      thx! :)

      I wonder what range you gave him after his 3-bet on the flop? How much outs did you had on the flop? A's, Q's?, flush? (3+2+7?)12?

      After his raise the pot ods were about 1:1 (The pot consists $1,05 and you need to call 0,98).

      You had 3 to 1 outs on the turn and combined with the implied odds and better the reversed implied odds (3bet) i'd fold.

      I personally think his betsize gives me too less equity.

      But I might be wrong :) Maybe if I look at it later i'll change my opinion, because i'm not fully sure.

      Since there are no straights present, I think you have a live 2pair draw so you have a monsterdraw here. Also add in that people can bluffcheck/raise you from time to time I would shove here

      Calling is the worst option since you do not have implied odds. if Villain has a single pair and you hit your flush, its hard to get value from him
