      On drawy flop I got top two pairs, so I bet for protection and value, I get minraised from shorstack vs him i wanted to play for stacks on the flop, but CO called too. On turn 8 comes and completes OESD, I check because I'm worried about CO and I don't want to be check raised , CO can have stronger hand than mine. I think I'am beat, but I called for implied odds, I got 4 outs and I need 11:1, but I get 5:1, so on the river I need to get his whole stack to be +EV, and where is a chance that I got the best hand right now.

      How should I play this hand?

      Hi,

      I think Co should ahve there more just flushdraw or pair+flushdraw than better hand than your top two pair. But if you want to see first safe turn card, then it is also fine. Instead of c/c I would prefer b/f turn myself 0.5$. UTG2 would get there all-in most of his range, but this way you´re also protecting your hand against draws. I think you can bet 0.7$ for value, since he may call you down with Jx or Tx

      best regards,
