      Did hero have good implied odds to call preflop? He had to call $2,5 which means that both hero and villain should have at least $50 and he has only $28. On the other hand, another $10 are already in the pot and there are two coldcallers in the pot. Further, hero has a position which may allow him to exctract maximum value if he hits.
