      mh i think this is close... you are nearly comited after your bet... i think you are getting 4.25 to 12. thats barely enough to call with a gutshot and a overcard (and then you should push right away)
      not sure about this one but i tend to push. i don´t like it. maybe i misscalculated something.

      btw: i think the beginners strategy says to fold

      If I had A :heart: , I would bet/push. I just have to win over 30% to make that play profitable and I don´t hink that I´m often too way behind.

      Normally I push 2 overcards +gutshot automatically. Here, who knows, depends on your opponent, maybe even your Q outs are clean.

      As played, nh. I think bet/call is a weaker play here, therefore, you have to think about it before the action, if you feel that conti bet commits you and your situation is good - push.

      I think you played it correctly here. You might only had 3 clear outs for your straight. Maybe your Ace outs where got as well. With an Ace of hearts, I would also have pushed directly on the flop.
