      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:diamond: , A:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,40, 2 folds, BB calls $0,30.

      Flop: ($1,25) T:diamond: , 4:diamond: , K:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $2,00 (All-In), BB calls $2,00, Hero calls $2,00.

      Turn: ($7,25) J:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $5,15 (All-In), Hero calls $5,15.

      River: ($17,55) J:club:

      Final Pot: $17,55

      on the flop, i did put them both on K, maybe KT or at most trips
      i did got pot odds 5.25:2 (about 2.6:1) and i had
      9(flush) + 3(queens) + maybe even aces or runner-runner jacks = 12 outs, that means, i needed for calling 3:1 odds, with implied odds, i tough, that's close enough

      on the turn, i got pot odds 12.4:5.15 (about 2.4:1) and i got
      9(flush) + 3 (queens) + possible 2 jacks + maybe 3 aces = surtenly 12, maybe even 14 or 17 outs, 3:1 to 2:1, so i called

      was my thinking and action correct?

      Hi Tuuletallaja,

      That flop is great for you. I'd c-bet there around $1 and go broke if I get raised.

      As played, you got yourself in a tough spot on the turn.
      A Q is certainly an out, but it may be good only to split the pot.
      But for simplicity's sake let's say you got 12 outs, then it's a pretty close call.
      You might have more outs, but maybe they are not outs at all.
      Well, on NL10 I'd make the call as well, but you should try to avoid difficult spots like this one because a lot of times you'll make the wrong decision. By going broke on that flop you avoid the tough spot on the turn and you have the odds to go broke there.

      And btw you should put your opponents on a range of hands, not just a hand. BB's range is SD, FD, Kx or maybe even Tx.
