      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 5, 5.
      UTG2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, MP2 raises to $0.14, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.31) 5, 4, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, MP2 calls $0.24.

      Turn: ($0.79) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.54, Hero calls $0.54.

      River: ($1.87) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.56, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.87.

      Can I call on turn? I made some calculations. Since he obviously has a flush he won't be folding it on the river no matter what card comes up. So I can use implied odds to call. I have 10 outs which gives me 1:3,6 odds, and my implied odds are 1:5. So I can call turn?

      Be careful with implied odds, just because he has a lot of money behind in his stack doesn't mean you automatically win it all when you hit a boat, so you can't count all of it as implied odds. If he knows what's he's doing he might check behind a flush or fold to a shove on a board pairing river, so you need to think a bit about how you plan to get the money out of him on the next street before calling the turn.

      That being said i think you only need him to put in another like $0.7 on the river to make that call, which sounds reasonable. He's probably not folding a flush to a less than 1/2 pot donk from you, even if the board pairs.

      Hope it helps.
