      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, do you think you will get called from a lot worse hands on turn? Plus of course you may face exactly such a spot where he decides to raise. While he is kinda loose then obviously your play isn't even wrong but then you should as well plan to go broke with your hand.

      But as we get such good odds seems like a nice hand. Another option would be just to Check behind on turn and then ship the river if we hit or depending on the actions/card bet for value. :)

      Best Regards.
