      I play NL2 MSS.

      I raised preflop to steal the big blind. Then in the flop I have double gutshot plus 1 overcard. I considered that a monster draw and bet. In the turn I decided to bet again, in spite of the diamond and finally gave up the hand in the river.

      Did I play it well? I'm concerned whether I played the turn right or not.

      Hello Elertar!

      On the Flop we indeed have a good hand. The Turn however makes things hard because 1) the flush came there but 2) if he doesnt have a flush but a flushdraw, that means we lose some outs (K, 9, A) since Flush>>>Straight

      That said I would either check/fold or bet again if you can fold out Tx/Qx. Generally I would check/fold here, it doesn't make sense to bluff here too often

      Best regards,
      Gerv
