      With 6 outs you need 7:1 on the Turn
      With 5 outs you need 8.5:1 on the Turn

      You get 5:1 with $6.5 behind which means you can barely make this play +EV

      In fact I would mostly double barrel this board to get FEQ and thin value against x hi flushdraws that you are still ahead against.
