      Hey Dooleslovs,

      Preflop call is borderline OOP vs an MP open. Won't necessarily be profitable in long-run.

      Check-raise for value is fine on this texture. Plenty of draws will continue.

      Best play on flop depends on assumptions that we can't make so well vs unknown. Basic assumptions are that he will bet the turn with close to 100% frequency, that his range is mainly AQ/KQ/TT/combo-draws which you have 34% equity against, and that his unlikely to be 3bet/folding.

      You usually need about 40% equity to continue here. Best option is probably to fold. However you don't need villain to have a much wider range for continuing to be correct. The problem is not the flop decision imo, but the preflop call. If you do play these hands, you are doing it to flop draws and maybe bluff, not to flop dominated top-pair/trips and get the money in.
