      Here, very bad play. :(
      At flop, call with pot odds 3.5:1 is good?
      At turn, check possible (no stats on opponents) or bet?
      At river, only bet/push .....

      On the flop you have a gutshot and a FD(+one overcard but that's of less importance), so you have at least 12 outs which I believe you can play as monsterdraw, so therefore a C/push would be correct line on flop. You could also make a call, but then you lose the bonus of FE.

      Hi theperni,

      on the flop you can just call,you get very good odds in a family pot and why risking to isolate against a stronger hand. the turn is a little bit tricky, when you donk the turn its clear that you have a flush, so with the intention to check raise its ok. on the river you have to raise, so many straights 2 pairs sets are paying you off easy all-in.

      Best Regards

      Isn't he supposed to play 12+ outs aggresively in a freeplay?

      This way you can take down the pot directly by pushing and even if a better hand calls him, he will win in 45% which is also +EV because of all the money already in the pot.

      This might have a bit higher variance, but I think it brings more profit in the long term or am I wrong?

      Also, isn't the point of SSS to put our money in as soon as possible? :)
