I think it is a bad call. Ass laughed off yet skol?
OK, I'm going to have a say in this also and defend BJ for a change (I think first time I ever agreed with him, what a *SHOCK*
Here's why. I think there is a very large difference when the implied odds are from preflop action, to implied odds calls made on the flop. When you call a big raiser who you know just basically plays premium hands (like AA, KK, QQ, ect) with like an 89 suited, because you know you'll be paid off huge if you get the right flop, this is great implied odds. Also, the biggest factor of preflop implied odds play is that you'll get to see a flop, or three cards
to possibly hit a flop in your neighborhood and stack the guy.
Now post-flop implied odds loses much value, compared to preflop implied odds, because of the fact that you are only get one card
after making an implied odds call (unless of course you call down to the river). Now, certain implied odds situations postflop are very ideal, and the odds are right for you to call and attempt to make your hand. For example, in this situation had joose had an open-ended striaght draw, or possibly a flush draw (i know flush possibility wasn't there, but hypothetically) then he would have had the right odds to call.
However, having just a gutshot, even with the implied odds being a factor, is normally not enough to make this call, IMO. You're playing basically for just the 7 here, with joose's hand, and well I just don't think that the odds are right at all here. Implied odds loses value postflop, because you don't get to see 3 cards in one go like you do when you make a preflop implied odds call, which is the reason why I think that that reason alone is not enough to make this call.
