      You have to call on the turn, since you´re getting correct odds. If you put MP3 better hand on the flop, then you could fold then.

      If you didn't like the flop raise why did you call it? The turn one is just a wee bigger and you're playing for a bigger pot... just call it

      I'm usually folding such holdings on the flop, drawing to the third flush, a gutshot and an OC on three suited flop is burning money real fast.

      There is no raise on flop. He said he didnt like to raise and thats why he called instead of raising.

      I think i would have called turn bet here. Then see what villain does after river. We get good odds and villain seems to be donk.

      I misread. My bad.

      I thought he didn't like his bet on the flop. You're getting odds, sure.. to what? Third best flush? Drawing to an ace? And a queen?

      If we were getting odds on the flop.. why fold to his bet on the river? Your odds are more or less the same.

      I think you can easily discount one or two outs for the flush.. which leaves you with 12 outs at best, with the posibility of drawing dead or being dead already..

      As I said.. donk or not.. I prefer folding on such a flop with such a hand..
