This is wrong isn't it? You are a slight favorite to win the hand but only if you see both the turn and the river. You are getting 2 to 1 odds but calling on the flop only buys you one card. I understand implied odds but they may be able to get out of the hand if your scare card hits too......
This might be a good chance to push all in banking that the folding equity + small advantage over most of your opponents range would more then make up for the rare times your actually dominated. I am assuming a decent sized pot realitive to your stack by this point.
This would be high variance though.
