      Final Pot: $0.42

      The question is: Should have I called on the turn? I got bottom pair, a gutshot and some outs for J and Q, but someone could have a flush draw for :spade: or :club: there, so I don't know... And bottom pair on this board isn't any good, I just called for the pot odds.

      On the river with pot odds 10:1 I just had to call with 2 pair, even if there is a possibility for :club: flush.

      Fold pf.
      QJs seems nice hand, but could get you a lot of trouble postflop.
      Calling down small bets are fine.

      I agree, I'm not following SHC strictly lately but on NL5 I really think I should, and I'm just a beginner so I won't do anything like this again :)
