      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      UTG: $18.85 (188.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10.36 (103.6 bb)
      SB: $9.67 (96.7 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $14.78 (147.8 bb)
      BB: $10.37 (103.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB raises to $0.90, BB folds, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.90) J Q 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.35, Hero folds

      $1.90 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: J Q 9
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$0.90 net)
      SB mucked and won $1.81 ($0.91 net)

      I called purely because SB had been very fishy. Is this enough justification for a call? Basically calling to hit a flush draw as I doubt and Ace will be good.

      If you doubt an ace will be good then a J is definitely no good.

      How often do you think you'll hit a flush draw or a 2p+ hand?

      An FD is about 10% and a 2p+ about 5%. So not very good odds. On top of this when you get a FD you have to put more money into the pot.

      So if we don't think we are ahead and play if we hit A or J we should fold preflop.
