      Preflop: freeplay.

      Flop: I have outs to 2pair/trips + FD. I'm not sure if my FD is good so I don't know if I made a good call. I think folding wouldn't be a mistake here.
      Turn: I get really good odds to call and I may even be ahead vs 1 card FD.
      River: just don't think that I'm beating his range and though I need only 28.57% equity to break-even I don't think I have enough.

      Should I just fold flop/turn or was this hand worth an extra investment?

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: I would normally fold flops like this OOP in a limped pot. We have a pretty bad hand and a pretty bad draw so we can just let the hand go.

      You can easily be dominated by better draws and can't afford to play a big pot with the 4th flush.
