      Hello uni1102,

      Add on to full stack.

      Preflop: Since we aren't that experienced I am not really big fan of completing such hands being OOP, we just could easily do big mistakes playing them postflop. But it's totally fine if you think that you have enough experience to overplay the fishes.
      Flop: Since it's freeplay pot and we have a straight only on a flushy board, I'd even sometimes consider Bet/Fold there, unless I know the opponent well. We have only invested like $0.20 of our stack, why to take risky situations? I don't like it, while he could easily have there a flush. I'd Bet/Fold.

      Best regards.
