      Hello Philfox1985,

      While it's just a freeplay pot fold it right on flop, not really worth risking with your stack while playing OOP and just having TP.

      Best regards.

      Only risky my stack if I hit straight, figured he was likely to pay me off?

      Other than that I hope for free show-down (unlikely given play)

      Really doubt that. :) You are playing OOP, you gonna see a 4card straight, plus FD possible.
