      Question 8:
      The pot is $2. An opponent bets $1 on the flop. You have $1, you'd therefore have to move all-in to continue playing. You are holding a flushdraw. Can you profitably call this bet? a) yes

      Pot odds 3:1
      Flush draw odds 2:1 (as you are all in and will see two cards because you are all in )

      Question 9:
      The pot is $2. An opponent bets $1 on the turn. You have $1, you'd have to move all-in to continue playing. You are holding an OESD. Can you profitably call this bet? b) no

      Pot odds 3:1
      Pot odds 2:1 (as you are all in and will see two cards because you are all in )

      Why is the answer no in question 9, what am I missing? Or is the pot odds 5:1 because there is only one card still to come?

      Secondly, isn't flushdraw suppose to be two words?

      Your input will be appreciated.

      Hello Walti72 ,

      You are correct with your assumption. Since you are already on the turn in question 9 there is only 1 card left to come. You therefore don't have sufficient odds.

      I also fixed the flush draw typo :)

      Best regards,
