      What do you think about the ch/calldown?
      Turn? I have some draws with /7 + 2ndpair.
      River? It's a great card for him to bluff.

      Hi,

      I don't call that much in SB vs CO or BU opens. This would usually be a 3bet for me preflop. Calling is doable but depends a lot on the standard of play of your opponents.

      Postflop, it's hard to say. Can he vbet thinly on turn with Tx? Does he barrel flushdraws? You could turn your hand into a bluff imo since its playability is a bit poor even when you hit your outs but can make him fold equity + Tx ->AA without a club redraw since you rep reasonably well.

      So you mean chRaising turn? If he calls, unimproved would you ch(/fold) river?

      Yeah, check/raising turn is what I mean. Regarding river a bit hard to say. I would be tempted to bet and continue playing it like a flush. I don't think gutter + flushdraw is too wide to include in your range to bluff Tx and overpair with clubs. Those definitely don't fold turn. Also, I believe very good hands to not just call turn, but 3bet to get it in very very often, so his river range has fewer strong made hands. It's OK to just call turn here if he knows you can bluff but he probably is not thinking as deep as that.
