      I had over pair and straight+flush draw. Just got unlucky or is there any other way to play it?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $6.70
      BB:
      $50.00
      Hero:
      $10.00

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.58 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:diamond: , J:heart:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, SB calls $1.75, BB calls $1.50.

      Flop: ($6.00) 9:diamond: , 7:diamond: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $8.00, Hero raises to $8.00 (All-In), SB folds, BB gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $22.00

      Well, you had a flush draw + gutshot on a flop, still a monster draw, impossible to think of folding here.

      I don't agree. The flush draw is not the nut FD, he's got only 1 flush card in hand and 2 opponents in pot. The BB stats are of a tight player and his aggression factor is another indication that when he betted on this flop, he's got a strong or even made hand. The only card that beats him is Td and the odds of having it are 46:1.

      I don't think you had the proper odds to call his raise. Although very difficult, I hope I would have fold ;) (and not get curious, which I am not sure at all)

      I am very curious though to see the judges evaluation

      Good luck Termi8r, I am one of your fans

      Guess correct move would be to fold here. But lets see what judges advice.

      I think it's ok. With an inside straight flush draw and an overpair I can't see myself folding here. Just no way I'm giving up such a powerfull hand while ssing :) .
