      BTN: 34.5 BB (VPIP: 10.81, PFR: 1.80, 3Bet Preflop: 2.63, Hands: 113)

      Hero (BB): 107 BB
      UTG: 112.5 BB (VPIP: 21.43, PFR: 11.43, 3Bet Preflop: 4.35, Hands: 71)
      UTG+1: 100 BB (VPIP: 22.95, PFR: 11.67, 3Bet Preflop: 4.17, Hands: 63)

      CO: 166.5 BB (VPIP: 22.22, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:spade: J:spade:

      UTG calls 1 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: (2.5 BB, 2 players) 5:heart: 7:spade: 8:spade:
      Hero bets 1.5 BB, UTG calls 1.5 BB

      Turn: (5.5 BB, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero checks, UTG bets 5 BB, fold

      UTG wins 5.5 BB

      I really think the only way to go on the turn is to bet again. I don't know why I didn't. If I bet he could fold. If he doesn't and I hit a flush or stratight I should win on the river. I almost called, but according to pot odds...that would be the wrong play as I'm getting about 3 to 1 to call and I have 12 outs...which is 4 to 1. Correct?

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: l'd bet 2 BB and bet/fold turn. We have OESD and FD and you decide to check/fold. Why?

      And you have more than 12 outs, 9 for flush, 6 for straight.

      I folded because I didn't think I had pot odds to call. Not very good at working that out in my head in the time given online...

      Was my first calculation in the message off?

      Oh sorry, I don't know why I typed 12 outs when I had calculated 16 outs moments before I typed that...

      So that means...I had about 3 to 1 odds to hit my hand then right?

      So I should have called.

      Yes, but you are still better off betting yourself.
