      Bet/fold. You don't have the odds; A or Q are likely no outs for the best hand so you rely only on flush and it might be that 8 and 9 :heart: are not alive. So bet/fold

      I dunno, if we discount the 8 and 9, still have 4xJ for the gutshot, and 7 flush outs, that's 11 in all, where we'd need odds of 3.18:1 to profitably call and we're likely to get the stack on the river given pot commitment?

      It would appear to be marginal either way I think. I guess the lower variance play would be to fold

      It's fold or 3-bet on that turn, and 3-bet would be overplaying. Why 3-bet? he has so small stack that we should call the river anyway whatever there comes, so better to commit ourself on turn. And that's why I'd prefer to bet/fold it there, we can't be sure how many outs we have here.

      We can be sure of the outs, discount the 8 and 9 from the FD and bring in the Jacks for the gutshot. All of those would definitely give us the best hand here and any 7 likely splits the pot.

      I think it's quite a close run thing. I'm not against the B/F like you say on the turn, but I think it could be thought about a bit more, it's quite a tricky spot I feel

      We should consider bet/folding turn. You get 21% pot odds but we have roughly 18% with our 9 out draw. If you count the Q as an out for a straight than we have another 6% which brings it closer.

      Theoretically we also have some implied odds because he has a small stack and may not be able to fold but also some of our outs may not be clean (if he has a set for example).

      Preflop I feel that your 3-bet size, OOP, is definitely too small. I'd 3-bet 10-12 BBs as you are giving odds to the opponent to see the flop with many hands and you will play OOP which is never fun.
