      First, I would 3-bet this hand pre-flop, make it 0.50 as we are out of position and thus this hand is harder to play.

      As played, I'd call the flop and on turn K I would raise. Our hand needs protection and opponent definitely have Flush and straight draws there. By raising we also prevent hard choises on river as we get more pot committed and are ready to play for stacks on most of the rivers. Ofc, J :heart: is the worst card on the deck, so you could even be folding here.

      Hello prime333,

      Preflop: Could easily 3bet it vs his weak open-raise.

      As played
      Postflop: As long you might have a best hand on the turn you could consider Check/Raising the turn for value. Passive approach is also fine but he will still have worse holdings there as even draws.

      Though as played unfortunately have to fold whilst FD also completes on the river.

      Best Regards.
