      Thought my implied odds were good here against quite a LAGy player, and called the flop raise for the same reason (both players were rather LAG and spewing a bit) with the intention of folding the turn with no help, is this okay despite the poor pot odds being given?

      Hi.

      I think your direct pot odds are pretty decent, it's your implied odds that are somewhat limited.

      Vs the raise you are calling 1.15 more to win 6.85 = 115/685 = 16.7%

      Assuming you have 9 clean outs to the flush, you probably get there around 20% of the time. That's already enough direct pot odds to justify the call.
