      Hey, villain was unknown.
      My flopCbet is to small I think, since I'm OOP and there are 2 :spade: , not too high because the board is still dryer as it looks like with K-high...so maybe around $1,20 on the turn I pick up a OESD to my 2nd pair. I don't want to play c/c but since many people bluff-float the board I probably should play c/c with my outs and the option for a cheap bluffcatch.

      But as played and with his $15 restack I'm not sure if I have the right implieds to call his raise. First I'm out of position what makes it more difficult to get his stack on hit and also have to discount 2 more outs for the flush.

      Hey Jazzy29,

      Double barreling is fine here, you essentially are using your hand as a semi-bluff with 5 outs.

      Turn is pretty close. If you always made villains stack the whole time you'd definitely have implied odds to call. In practice because there are 2-spades out there your implieds may be damaged on a spade river, and there is not guarantee you will get paid on a 4-to-straight river when you hit especially OOP. It's close-ish, but folding is definitely fine imo.
