I played a 0.01/0.02 Game, 9 handed:

I'm holding . The board is . Im head-up out of position.
There is $1 in the pot and the opponent bets his last $0.50.

I'm pretty sure that he has AA or KK at this point. Should I call for good pot odds?

Thanks

Lets look at the pot odds vs. your odds of winning the hand.

First the pot odds, this is easy to work out, you need to call a bet which is 50% of Pot. Pot Odds = 50%

Now let's work out what cards can help you and using the Rule of Four and Two work out your win percentage.

On the turn you hold two pair Tens and Nines. You think your opponent is ahead with Aces or Kings.

You need to catch either a Jack for a Straight or a Ten for a full house Tens over Nines. This gives you 8 outs and using the 2 x rule = 16%

Therefore in the long run it's not profitable to call here.

16% Win Odds Vs 50% Pot Odds = Fold
