      I have a confusion how to play this hand. Should have I raised on the flop cos I have 15 outs, or maybe ra-raise him? I need advice, thanks

      If I put my opponent to range, my equity is always over 40% here.

      Should have I go for shove at flop?

      Being OOP I just fold this hand preflop, or squeeze if the villains in the pot have high fold to 3bet or high fold to cbet in 3bet pot!

      As played

      If he's fairly tight and doesn't barrel much then I'd play the same

      I'd even call the turn to try and hit flush if the villain is a fish, he could stack off with over pair, or any random 7x hand or even a worse flush! You'd only be worry'd about 77 (very unlikely) 44 and 55.

      Wait to see what judge says :D

      Hello Crixus26,

      Well, first of all you can't be sure if you have all your outs. :) Check/Shoving doesn't make sense either, if you do anything at all there then the line should be Check/Raise not Check/Shove which is clearly overplayed.

      Playing your way the hand is also fine cause we wouldn't want to go broke vs a strong range which might be even FH/Quads and of course stronger overpairs against which we don't have that good equity.

      Best Regards.
