      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: 10 cents whilst there is also a limper. :P
      Postflop: Nah, not worth calling on the turn nor CBetting the flop. I'd just fold the turn to avoid complicated situations on the river which may happen. We can't be sure what kind of outs are clean for us and what not.

      Best Regards.

      Even when we get such great odds (11%)? We have 6 (4 without the :heart:) , but the implied odds should be enough.

      Is it possible to get such great odds, and fold?

      What outs. :P You might be already there vs FH and never know what kind of outs are clean for you. Nor of course I doubt that those guys will often enough pay you.
