      Party Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $25.55
      UTG+1: $25.39
      Hero: $50.29
      Button: $25
      SB: $29.97
      BB: $18.43

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is CO with 5:club: 5:heart:
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $1.25[/color], 2 folds, BB calls, UTG+1 calls.

      Flop: Q:spade: 5:spade: 2:heart: ($3.85, 3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 checks, [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $2.5[/color], BB folds, UTG+1 calls.

      Turn: 8:spade: ($8.85, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 bets $8[/color], Hero calls.

      River: K:diamond: ($24.85, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 is all-in $13.64[/color], Hero calls.

      Final pot: $52.13

      Ok, two questions:
      1) Probably I should have bet all in or folded on the turn, right? Which one is correct? :P I think because of my outs to FH or quads I have the implied odds to push here, correct?
      2) If he bets less on the turn, like $5, would it be a good idea to call and fold to his river bet if I don't improve?

      Make it 3,5$, since you don´t want to see another flushcard.
      Nl 25 players play quite straight forward, so he probably has here flushd or turned set on the turn. So I thin you can fold river even getting quite good odds.
