      1) I'm not quite sure my bluff-raise was big enough after flop. Perhaps I just should have gone all-in, no?
      2) I'm not sure whether my call was too great either. I did have some 10 outs or so, though. Was that enough?

      Hi Avatars91,

      If you are not sure whether to call the raise after you have cBet or not, I would suggest you restudy the following articles:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/sss/993/1

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/sss/1375/1

      Now helping you with this hand. Preflop is OK but on the Flop, you have to invest more than//more or less equal to 50% of your stack so I am happy to shove here with 2 overs and a gutshot.

      There is also chance vilain will fold which is awesome since you only got King high!

      As played, you get ($1.15+$1.45+$0.7)=Maximum amount that you can win
      And you have $0.75 left. Puttin this next to each other you get this:

      3:0.75
      4:1

      Which means you have to have like 5outs to be profitable here. Since there are 4 jacks that gives you a straight, I can safely say you can call this raise.

      But I am more inclined to shove it as a bluff

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      With pot odds 4:1 before my call, why do I have to have 5 outs to be profitable?
      I mean, the draw odds should be no more than 4:1, right? Which means, there should be at least 9 outs, as in the flush draw. How did you calculate 5?

      You are on the flop hence you will see 2 cards therefore you can roughly divide the amount of outs needed by 2.

      Scroll down a bit and you see a chart about odds/outs
