      On the turn the pot is $13,60 and you have to call $4,50. So that's 3:1, you need 4:1 for a profitable call, taking in consideration only the odds and outs. But here we are playing NL =) You are IP and your draw is hidden, so you have big implieds if you hit.

      Your call will always be profitable if you can get at least $5 more on the River. That's easy to accomplish in a $18 pot in position.


      Well played!

      As Gabinr1 said you played the hand well because of your implieds. If you just had the flush draw and not the gutshot then I think you can fold the turn.

      Thanks guys, I thought i had played it alright but wasnt sure if it was exactly what i should of done.
      The guy Flipped over QJ and recieved the bad news. I didnt have him on QJ though, i thought he might be protecting two pair.
