      You flopped a monster draw(14+ outs) and if I'm not mistaken you should try to move all-in as soon as possible, therefore...

      ...bet potsize(0.5$) on flop and push turn.

      However, I think you should wait for the judge for his post, since I'm not sure I'm right.

      Bet pot on the flop, push turn or bet just 2/3 pot if the push seems premature. Also, there's a way to raise bb against sb opencompleting.
