      Thoughts on this hand people?

      My thought was that this guy was aggressive and I was calling to then check raise the flop to matter what - it turned out I had an OESD and improved to Flush draw too but missed all 15 :(

      Hello Rastlin1,

      Preflop: Those hands ain't that easy to play especially when you gonna do it OOP. So without good reads/stats on the opponent and without good postflop skills I wouldn't advice to play it.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine but I don't like that much the Bet size on the turn, ~$3 should be enough if to 2nd barrel it at all. Since it's gonna be very likely that he is going to continue after he called on the flop which might make me even towards to just Check it on the turn. But with such a strong hand ain't a mistake to 2nd barrel.

      Best Regards.
