      is the call here justified given the good pot odds? 4 isnt the most probable card for them to hold because they were relatively tight

      well first of all you have to consider the pot odds. the pot odds are 0.3 to $1.4 ... so about 1 to 4.7. now you have to count the cards that could help you. first of all there are 3 remaining sixes 6s and three remaining 7s plus 4 remaining sevens. now you have to discount these outs cause sometimes you wont hold the best hand even if you hit your outs.

      so i d say every 2.5 outs for the sixes because there could also be someone holding a better six or even, though unlikely, a set. you cant count the 7 as outs against 7 opponents. i give you about 0.5 outs for that. the 4 gives you the best hand relatively sure. only 78 would beat you. so i give you about 3.5 outs for the four for a total of 6.5 outs.

      6.5 / 46, thats about 1 to 6.

      most of the time you wont have many implied odds though maybe reverse implied odds. i think they are both equal.

      thus, you have about 1 to 4.7 pot odds and 1 to 6 normal odds which makes it an easy fold.
