      Hero checks, CO bets $0.70, BU raises to $1.46, Hero calls $1.46, CO folds.

      River: ($5.06) T (2 players)


      Final Pot: $5.06.

      I would rather raise or fold preflop, but maybe calling is best.

      On the flop I think raising is bad since a raise and a call is probably not folding(maybe one fold), but the odds are really close, I think its ok to call the flop.

      Turn: This is really close and tough, but it might be a fold since i need 29% equity to call and best case I have 27% BUT sometimes the 3rd player will call or raise(with a set?) which would lower the equity required to 25%, but I have 23% equity in that case, so it is always a fold with these pot odds?

      Hello,

      I prefer fold preflop.

      Same goes for the flop to me. We just have a gutshot, we are OOP and we would have hard time continuing here.

      The turn is always a fold here. We don't get the right pot odds, we have 0 implied odds, plus we don't always have the best draw here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      You're right about the flop, i was thinking i had 10:1 stack implied odds for a gutshot, but it has reverse implied odds too and i can't depend on the whole stack.
