# [NL2-NL10] Ak- Odds to call?

PokerStars - \$0.02 NL - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

BTN: \$1.32
SB: \$2.00
BB: \$2.00
UTG: \$3.22
UTG+1: \$1.45
Hero (UTG+2): \$2.45
MP: \$2.51
MP+1: \$2.72
CO: \$1.89

SB posts SB \$0.01, BB posts BB \$0.02

Pre Flop: (pot: \$0.03) Hero has A K

Note: Correct play. 4bb + 1limper

fold, UTG+1 calls \$0.02, Hero raises to \$0.10, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls \$0.10, fold, fold, fold

Flop: (\$0.25, 2 players) T 5 J

Note: Bet the pot as a semibluff and to protect my hand against fluch.
I should had contuined based that I had to put in \$30 to win \$113 with pot odds of 3.4. my odds are 6 odds highcard and gutshot of 4 = 10odds and big implied odds if I hit. I would need 3.5 in potodds to call with 10odds, but I had big impliad odds if I hit.
So the right decition is to call?

Hero bets \$0.24, BTN raises to \$0.54, fold

BTN wins \$0.70

i wouldn't bet flop so big. betting something like .18 will have the same effect on villain. as for calling the rr, the problem is that we do not know which cards are clean outs. any A,K or Q of spades could have us drawing dead, so our reverse implied odds are not very good.

i would simply bet/fold .18 here

Hello mateuszrybinski,

You don't have to pot the flop cause you practically going to have the same fold equity. Though if you Bet then you can't really Bet/call cause you don't have the implied odds for your GS.

Best Regards.
