      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:heart: , 9:spade:
      6 folds, SB calls $0,15, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,50) K:club: , 9:club: , J:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,36, Hero...

      Should I discount the queens from my outs here?
      I have 4 T's to complete a straight, 2 nines to complete a set and 3 queens to complete two pair. If my opponent has a T, my queen will complete his straight though...

      Should I discount the 3 queens then?

      Supposing I do not discount the queens. I have 9 outs, which gives me 4:1 odds. The pot odds however are less than 2:1. I'd have to count on implied odds to make the call worth it. I'd have to make him call at least a .60 bet on the turn to make it worth it. The board is very scary though, so do you think I could get him to pay that bet?

      Preflop: Raise this one since SB complete is very very weak! 4bb is mostly enough to let them fold, if they call well you have position on them :)

      I only count 3 T's (no ) and 2 nines which gives you 5 outs.

      As he bets 2/3 you can make an estimation of your implied, I think he bets 2/3 again if you call so the pot would be on the Turn: $1.22 so he bets around $0.8

      $0.86+$0.8 : $0.36 = 4.6:1 at max.

      With 5 outs, its a weak draw and should be played c/f. I dont like calling here as it is a waste of blinds (you only had to post 1bb because you had to..)

      So next time, raise preflop to 4bb as a steal whenever SB open-completes ;)
