      I would check-fold here and maybe call very small bets but I would never do such big bets as you did. Risking with such hand isn't the best move. But it's only my advice :P lets see what judges advice

      I don't think it's a hand really worth playing. Here you may assume having from 6 to 9 outs (4 gutshot outs, two for trips and three for two pair) but well, they aren't clean at all.

      Firstly, the gusthot. After hitting your 5 any 6 beats you. This is kind of annoying...

      Secondly, the 4. You cannot really rely on two outer...

      And lastly, every ace gives a straight to any 5.

      So having the lower edge gutshot to a wheel isn't so good even with additional pair. Well, you can say 'oh, I have a tptk so i bet' and yes, you do have a tptp... until turn, when an overcard is likely to hit.

      IMHO it's a check/fold, waiting for any ofyour draw to hit (than maybe you can win middle sized pot with your wheel or whatever).
