      I shouldn't have completed the small blind but despite that: Did i have to fold in that spot?

      As you said, fold preflop.
      On the flop I would have done the same, you have quite alot of outs.
      9 for the FD, 2 for trips, 3 for 2 pair.
      That makes 14 outs which is more than enough.
      So play it like a made hand, which is what you did, so your flopplay is perfect IMO.

      I see you're Dutch, why don't you visit the Dutch forums, it's so great over there! :D

      Hi SindeeSugar,

      no need to invest half a bb to such a worthless hand. Suited two-gappers are absolutely not worth playing when sssing, you simply have not enough implied pot odds.

      On the flop you hit your flush draw and a pair which stands for quite a big draw. Against two oponents it's an easy bet pot first in but considering a raise and a reraise it becomes a bit more complicated. You have low fd so can already be dominated, also trips can spoil your equity here. But since NL10's fishy, I'd call hoping that clean fd and trip outs can be sufficient here.

      Running some numbers in Equilator...

      If one of them has a better fd, you're doomed. If he has trips, it's close. Against pair-twopair hands it's absolutely correct to call. I'd call.

      See you around!
