      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $11.40
      CO:
      $6.41
      BU:
      $4.35
      SB:
      $18.84
      BB(Hero):
      $5.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9, 7.
      2 folds, BU calls $0.05, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.15) A, 9, 7 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, BU raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.40, Hero calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($1.65) Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BU bets $3.80(All-In), SB calls $3.80, Hero folds.

      River: ($9.25) A (2 players)


      Final Pot: $9.25.

      So I want to ask about the raise on the flop. I was raising to get value not to give the guy on the BTN good odds to call.

      When he raises me I have 12% pot odds thus even though I know that I am underdog I am calling. But is this call ok? There is a chance that I am drawing to worse full house, Should I fold in such a situation even though I have great pot odds to call?

      Thank you

      Hi,


      I'm definitely not folding to the min3bet, and considering they both limped + it's nl5 i'd probably just 4bet huge and get it in, expecting to see enough top pairs good kicker / flushdraws to make that profitable, as well as the occasional set / better two pairs coolers.

      As played easy check/fold on the turn. If it wasn't a club i'd have bet out myself again and stacked off.


      Hope it helps.
