      UTG2 stats 8/6 AF:5 WTSD:19 W$SD:50 after 328 hands.

      Would call flop? I think I have implied odds.

      As played on the river my bet size is ok?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30, 3 folds, BU calls $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $1.19, MP1 folds, BU folds, Hero calls $1.19.

      Flop: Not really you have reverse implied odds, you don't even draw to the nuts since a Queen improves AK and K9 as well. I'm not concerned about K9 since it's not in a nit's opening range but he can very easily have AK. Also take note that if you hit your one card straight your hand is very obvious. Don't expect to get paid off huge (you can probably valuebet 1/3 pot at the very most)

      If he bet 50-60% pot I might call (not too happy about it) but given his size i Just fold right away.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Agree that you wont really see many K9 hands in such an nitty range and nor I don't see him AK Betting this amount. So I don't mind calling with the implied odds but is it good on that board? We going to have 1card straight which means we don't really have the implied odds cause the guy just ain't going to pay it. Which proves even the play. Therefore it's a fold not cause we assume him having AK there.

      Though as played I'd still bet the river a bit bigger for value like $2+.

      Best Regards.
