      Outcome: Hero won $1.02

      My main concern is whether my call on the flop is justified. The pot odds (in %) are 22.2% and odds of hitting my flush on the turn are 19%, so the call is pretty marginal if we consider only direct pot odds and I would like to have at least one more opponent in the pot. I don't think we have high implied odds because the villain's bet is rather weak and the flush draw is obvious. Also, I disregarded the possibility of him already having a full house because it just seems a bit too far-fetched. However, I called because it was a minbet and seemed pretty weak to me. (Of course I'm happy to call the bet on the turn because the pot now is big enough).
