      I have 4 outs, are they worth to call 0,20 $ in this situation?
      or should i bet my straight draw at the flop ?

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      good decision to fold, you don't get nearly close to the proper pot odds to chase a gutshot (and it's the idiot end of the gutshot) check-fold is the way to go here. Play your draws passibly on a freeplay , don't bet your weak draws against that many oponents

      You had to call .20 to a .80 pot. That gives you a ratio of 4 to 1. You had 4 out and the chance of hitting it would be about 11 to 1 so a fold is the right way to go.

      Hello Paperwings,

      You have to discount (Rabatt?) a lot with your bottom end.

      Please re-study the article Draws in a Freeplay and you should get familiar that only OESD/FD and monsterdraws are worth playing.

      So Easy muck
