      First of all, I sadly didn't notice the pot was much smaller than it was actually written, because my opponent reraised me with an all-in with more chips than I had, so I gave myself the wrong odds.
      Then again, with 2 strong overcards, I don't look that bad either. With 3:1 draw odds and 3:0.85 pot odds (which are a bit greater than my draw odds though).
      What do you think? Should I have folded?

      If you are drawing to 6 clean outs you have 3.1:1 based on 2 cards.

      On the flop you get $0.95+$0.6+$1.45 versus $0.85 = 3.5:1

      Since that is bigger, you can call this off +EV

      If pot odds are bigger than the required odds, you can call
