      You get the odds to call this flopbet.
      However, maybe you should be afraid of any :club: .

      On the turn you hit your straight, so I'd just bet 2/3pot, maybe a bit more to protect your hand.
      Shoving the turn is no option because that's too much of an overbet.

      As played I might even be able to fold the river after his raise, because of the paired board and possible flush.

      Flop: I would fold. I don't like seeing those 2 clubs and don't wanna waste my doubled stack on something like that.
      Turn: Bet to protect your hand against any draws
      River: Bet and fold to any big resistance from Villain.

      Hi tehChipDonk,

      calling the flopbet is a must - you just have sufficient pot odds. I'd also just donkbet the turn since you have one street less to put all your money in and cannot wait for another club to come.

      Note out this player - attend to slowplay sets on drawheavy board is something you want to know about your oponents.

      And don't post results, since you can get biased evaluation.

      I thought that maybe not all his outs were good here.
      But I guess I'm mistaken there.

      I would agree with you. First of all, we have only 1 card str8 draw on a flushy board. Thats not a descent draw) The pot odds justify calling (you have some of K outs). However, i don't really think its worth it. we can get in so many ugly spots (especially, with 40BB stack), fighting for unraised pot. Fold is just easier

      as played, bet 2/3 turn and c/c river
