i suppose that call pre is really bad, but nevermind. what about the flop, is it ok to get it in?
If you continue, you're risking your whole remaining stack, roughly $23, not just the amount of this bet. If you make low and don't get fractionated, you'll win half of (3.60+10.63), about $7. Plus you get your own investment back. (I don't count your own money that you get back as winnings, although the casino does).
Thus if you continue, you're risking $23 to win $7. You'll only make low about 72.1%. Thus you're a 721 to 279 favorite to make low.
But $7*.721-$23*.279=a negative number. And I haven't even figured in the chance of you getting fractionated for low. It's an unfavorable odds bet.
Wait for an opportunity to get your money in when the odds are on your side.
