      since pot is quite big I don´t think you have there fold equity.
      But with flushdraw+gutshot you get odds to call so I´d personally would call turn bet. But I think a lot better option would be betting turn yourself 0.4$ and then possible also betting river to get someone fold weak hands

      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: I'd actually even advice not really playing that loose with those kind of hands if you don't feel that secure playing postflop. Rather just fold them. If you don't have a great plan for postflop it's pretty hard to play such hands and as well even when you hit your TP you will never know or either if you hit your flush, never know if it's good enough.

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't make sense to shove the turn, you will mostly get called by better hands and likely even don't have fold equity. But I guess I would rather as well play it Check/Call while we even getting the odds. Betting the turn doesn't really bring us much while being in such a multiway pot. We likely wont have fold equity either with the donk.

      Best regards.
