      Hi veriz,

      I wonder if it's okay if I over bet the turn? Since the pot size are pretty small.

      Thanks,

      Hello cpers,

      Obviously overplayed your straight here. From what worse you gonna get called when you 3bet? Rather just Call his raise and be happy if you even are ahead. Better straights/FHs possible. Also it's just a freeplay pot.

      Best regards.
