      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is UTG3 with A:spade: , K:spade:
      SB posts small blind ($0.02), BB posts big blind ($0.05), UTG2 folds, Hero raises for $0.20, 3 folds, CO calls, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47 - 9.40 bb) 9:spade: , 4:spade: , 3:club: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO raises for $1.05, Hero calls

      Turn: ($2.57 - 51.40 bb) 7:spade: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.70, Hero raises for $5.22, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($3.52)

      -----

      CO was 42/25/0 over 12.

      Flop: I get 2 : 1 pot odds and I need 4 : 1 purely for the FD. However, given that villain signals strength I think I have the odds to call.

      Turn: going for a check/raise. Don't want to see any more scary cards for the villain, e.g. another spade, overcards.
      If he has a set he is not folding anyways.

      Is my estimation of implied odds on the flop correct?

      flop - yes you are right

      turn - I'm not sure if check/raise turn is too scary for him but it definitely looks scarier than a pot size donk. i prefer donking both turn and river for value since we will get it in anyway and we give him a chance to raise the turn again (as a bluff or for value with a worse hand)
