      Hi,

      Since I don´t like c/c these spots I would likely barrel turn myself- there are some worse draws or Ax hands that he might fold and with A or flush outs I think we have also enough outs to barrel turn

      best regards,

      Reply without reading the Mods evaluation:
      I think the preflop raise is dangerous. Difficult to play postflop and out of position (as in this case) and not the best place for a steel. Flop Continuation bet is difficult too, many many better hands beat you. Give it up after the turn check/(fold)...
