      Hi Miguel,

      Preflop: Despite getting decent odds preflop the call is a bit thin because our hand is not very strong. The flush we would be chasing is only J high so we would face, in most cases, a lot more Qx, Kx, Ax flush draws.

      Postflop: As played do we know anything else about SB?

      He can have a range consisting of KJ, 88, 55, JJ, J8s and all of them would play the same way. He could also play AJ/QJ this way but less likely.

      So unless he is a maniac or bluffy guy the river is a fold as he will have a hand that beats our a lot more often than not (see hands listed above).
