      Hey Gao20005,

      Trying to get the money in on the flop is the most common line, I prefer flat calling at 10nl. Players don't raise light on monotone boards, and it will usually be advantageous for you to make your decision on the turn card.

      A number of things might happen. Turn might slow villain down. Smaller pot on turn might mean easy call even if flush gets there. You might be able to get your money in in a much higher equity spot, especially if you hit.

      On the turn you basically have an odd-calls to hit your boat. It's more or less break even but with the implieds on the river it'll clearly be profitable.
