      mmh T of heart is a bit wicked, a flush could have arrived, calling your bet imo could definitely mean he hit his flush draw.

      Any 8 makes the straight.

      I would have made a bet to 1$ ready to give up the hand after a reraise or to check it down unimproved after a call.

      My two pair is not very strong here imo.

      But that's only how I played it interested in the Judges advices.

      well, this spot looks kinda ugly, but I don`t think we can fold here against unknown. Following this assumption, push is a weak play here, since we only allow better hands (made draws or very strong combos) to call us. While, betting the pot size may induce some semi-bluffs or even bluffs.

      Is here a difference between betting 2/3 of pot potsize and if so why?

      because if he still holds a draw, J5h for instance, you want to offer him the worst possible pot odds. if you bet potsize, the odds are 2:1, while he need approx. 4:1. the lower are odds for him, the bigger mistake he is making when calling. you gain when your opponents make mistakes)
