      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP2 with 5 :spade: 6 :spade:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05 (pot was $0.07), Hero calls $0.05 (pot was $0.12), MP3 folds, CO calls $0.05 (pot was $0.17), Button calls $0.05 (pot was $0.22), SB calls $0.03 (pot was $0.27), BB checks.

      Flop: Q :spade: J :spade: K :diamond: ($0.3, 6 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP1 bets $0.2, Hero calls $0.2 (pot was $0.5), CO calls $0.2 (pot was $0.7), 2 folds, BB raises to $0.65, MP1 calls $0.45 (pot was $1.55), Hero calls $0.45 (pot was $2), CO folds.

      Turn: 6 :diamond: ($2.45, 3 players)
      BB bets $1, MP1 calls $1 (pot was $3.45), Hero calls $1 (pot was $4.45).

      River: 4 :heart: ($5.45, 3 players)
      BB bets $1.1, MP1 calls $1.1 (pot was $6.55), Hero folds.

      Results:
      Final pot: $7.65
      BB showed Ac Td
      MP1 mucks Qh Kh

      Ok, conclusion... I put into the pot of size $7.65 only $1.25 (16%) with probability hit the flush 35% after the flop... in my opinion that makes sense :D

      Hi funktor,

      I'd fold PF. I don't like limping in MP with suited conectors, unless there's been already a few limpers before me. Here you got just one limper, so I'd fold.

      I'd play it the same way but I'm not a big fan of low FD, sometimes you think you're drawing to the best hand, when you're actually drawing to second best, so you need to play it cautiously.

      On the flop I'm really worried about the CO, but you're getting too good odds to lay down your hand.
      After the CO folds, things improve a lot to you, it's unlikely anyone else is drawing and you got position.

      I discovered this yesterday when I had low FD and at showdown 2 other players had higher FD!
