      I would actually fold the flop here for a few reasons:

      1) with your OESD you are getting 3:1 (0.36:0.12) and normally need about 4.8-5:1 pot odds to make a call profitable with such a hand. However since there are FD possibilities we have to "discount" some outs that may give our opponents a Flush, so we only have 6 clean outs to make our straight.

      This means that we actually need 6.8-7:1 to make calling here profitable.

      2) I dont think we have good implied odds on such a wet board and may encounter some reverse implied odds when we hit our out and still lose to a better hand by doing so (eg someone has 7X)

      As played on the turn I would probably raise and get it in here, since I think sets and 2pr will likely play bet/broke against a raise here and I dont like calling since there are many bad river's for our hand.

      Hello 0744379,

      Either bet our yourself the flop or just Check/Fold it, you wont have the implied odds in a freeplay pot + there is a FD possibility and even already strong made straight. ;)

      Best Regards.
