      I'd say you have 11 clean outs here with your flushdraw and ace. So that means you have 4.18:1 odds of hitting. It costs you $0.11 for a chance to win $0.46 which gives you exactly 4.18:1 pot odds as well. Since there are two people left in teh hand, you can assume you have some implied odds on the river, so imo, this was a good call.

      Hi Bubalus,

      I give you 11 outs thus you need 3.3:1 so I don't know how dcmcfyl comes to 4.18:1 as the odds/outs chart tells you its 3.3:1-like

      24+11 / 11 =>3.18 :1 which means you come short a little bit to call directly +EV.

      When you study the odds/outs articles, you need to study the implied odds article as well since a made hand like Trips/Set/Toppair would most likely pay you out whenever you have a backdoor flush eg.

      I would call on the Turn and as soon as you hit, I play Bet/Raise otherwise check/fold

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      But big blind called too meaning (24+11+11)/11~4.2:1

      That is exactly what I was thinking when I called.
