      BU was 50/29/0 over 14.

      Preflop: standard.

      Flop: semi-bluff cbet. When I'm raised I get 3.14 : 1 to call so I will need $0.43 extra on the future streets which I think won't be a problem.

      Turn: I pick up a GS to my FD but the pot odds just aren't good enough for me to call. I get 2 : 1 and I need 3 : 1 for my 12 outs.
      However, I think it wouldn't be a problem since I have only $2 left and he couldn't fold to that on the river, could he? Regardless, I'm OoP so this makes getting the money in harder. I think a fold is ok here.

      Hi.

      This hand is probably barely strong enough to call here. You get 25% equity vs most hands vs 33% pot odds. I think u do have enough implied odds and your flushdraw is to the 2nd nuts. You could always lead on the river.

      I think folding is also fine especially if villain knows how to herofold. Both decisions are fairly close, it mostly boils down to your implied odds on river.
