      Was flop bet ok? I didn't want to "loose customers" by overbetting, but didn't want to give away free cards either.

      On turn I bet pot due to the flushdraw appearing and a desire to take home the pot there and then. I was surprised when I got raised and didn't know what to put him on. I thought it unlikely that he'd made a straight by tagging along this far with 78 so took it for two pair, top pair or similar.

      Either way, I figured I was ahead and called. Even if he did have a straight, I still had 10 outs to improve to full house or quads.

      I can't see how I can fold to his shove, but should I?
