      You can consider raising flop here given your huge draw and how bad the board is for most hands. As played you probably have to fold turn.

      Hello fuinhapoker,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Rather recommend not calling those hands and building up a multiway pot. It's very difficult to play with them and you are often dominated by stronger Kx/Jx hands. Fold it here.

      As played
      Postflop: You are rather overplaying your draw, you don't really get 2streets implied odds there. At the best you could consider calling the flop and then rather folding the turn. With just 1card flush you quite obviously ain't going to get paid when you hit it.

      Best Regards.
