      Hey daisuke,

      This hand is strong enough to be raised preflop if no one has raised before. On the flop raising is also an option depending how aggressive the villain is, but calling is fine also. On the turn you have enough outs to call the bet. You also have a straight draw but even without it, it would be worth the call.

      In similar situations, nut low draw and open ended straight draw is the worst hand that is close between calling and folding. Anything better you can be happy to call there.

      thank you,
      yes indeed I have really nice draw,but can I really call it?

      at least he has high 2 pair or set on the flop I guess
      and just one river card is left

      and 44 cards is left
      and I assume I can get half when I hit nut low ,and half when flush hits.

      and first,about low , 3,4,5,7 , 16 cards in total and I have one so 15 cards is left.
      and diamond for flush is 9 cards
      and I am not sure if I can win when diamond 6 or diamond k comes,so I make it 8 cards out
      and 4 cards is duplicative with low . and I assume diamond 6 is only for low .
      and straight draw ,spade heart club T ,I assume its scoop .

      and as a result
      scoop 10 cards ( 23.8%)
      low 11 cards ( scoop for 4 cards) (26.1%)
      and lose in 21 cards ( 50%)
      and low is split.

      23.8:50.0=1:2.1

      I feel it seems so bad to call pot bet,no?

      You also have implied odds there. He often bets the river, or check-calls when you hit the flush or straight for scoop.
