      Still learning my odds and outs. Think I had 10 outs here (gutshot and overcards) - guess they need to be discounted to around 8 (or am I too generous)?
      Enough outs to call or did I throw my money away?

      Known players:

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , K:spade:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, 3 folds, SB calls $1.15, BB folds, MP1 calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($4.00) 4:spade: , 3:club: , 5:club: (3 players)
      SB raises $3.50 (All-In), MP1 folds, Hero calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($11.00) 7:spade:
      River: ($11.00) Q:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $11.00

      Also pot was over twice my stack and I think strategy says it is profitable to go all in no matter what if this is the case?

      Hey Spidey1978,

      you have 10+ clean outs against an overpair with 2OCs, GS and backdoor FD. And since you only need 33.5% equity you made a good call.

      As for the rule to go all-in when pot is twice as big as your stack, it comes into account when pot is twice as big as your stack before opponent's action, meaning if your stack was 2$ or less on the flop then you could go all-in regardless of villain's action in this hand.
