      I think think you did the right thing with calling the raise on the river. My reasoning here is: opponents on this limit might think you're trying to steal and will raise you with kings. The call only costs you $0.34 more so it's not a biggie. If reraised more I might be inclined to lay it down.

      So as played, nh

      You definitely have to call reraise on the river, the question is only whether call or shove, but I think your line is better, the call, because there'a a flush possible. And I don't think many worse hands will raise you on the river. Nice hand.

      Anyone know the odds of runner-runner straight and flush hitting?
