Sorry I don't have the complete Handhistory.

I was playing a 0.01/0.02 game holding . It's heads-up on the flop of and there is $0.40 in the pot.

My opponent moves all-in for his last $0.10. He's rather tight so I guess he holds something decent.

Can I fold or do I have to call for the good odds?

This is a snap call. You have to put in an extra $0.10 to make a pot of $0.60 which is about 17%. You have about a 33% of making your nut flush which means in the long run, every time you make this call you make $0.10 profit.

The only problem I see with this hand is how did you manage to get into a situation where the pot is $0.40 and he only has $0.10 left. This means the guy couldn't have started the hand with much more than $0.30 so I would have been looking to get him all-in preflop if possible.

For me its hands down, an easy snap call. He's going to be shoving that last 10 cents regardless of the flop or anything you do. Add to that you have the nut flush draw.

Hope this helps.
