      the way I see this is there's already 4.75 in the pot and I can call the 1.25 for set value, playing bet if I hit, fold if I don't. How bad is the flop call? ( I think I needed 20:1, but could only get about 11:1 if a 7 hit...)

      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

      CO ($40)

      Flop: ($6.50) 5, A, 9 [color:#009B00](4 players)[/color]
      Hero checks, [color:#CC3333]MP1 bets $1.50[/color], MP2 calls $1.50, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($11) 7 [color:#009B00](3 players)[/color]
      Hero checks, [color:#CC3333]MP1 bets $25.40 (All-In)[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Hero calls $6.50 (All-In)

      River: ($24) Q [color:#009B00](2 players, 2 all-in)[/color]

      Total pot: $24 | Rake: $1.20

      Hi Wildbeans,

      I either shove this preflop with that much deadmoney or fold. Even though you get 4.25:1.25 - it ain't enough since you are OOP and you have a small stack thus you get nowhay implied odds.

      I immediately check/fold Flop if the bet is >3bb since you should count 2 outs as 22.5:1 which means the pot has to be 22.5*X where X is Villain's bet to let your call be justified in the end.

      And the percentages of hitting a 2 outer is 5% per street :rolleyes:

      As played -> cooler but folding flop is +++EV

      Best regards,
