      Bet potsized on the Turn for Value + giving Villains bad pot odds.

      Because:
      You dont want the board to be paired again. (3:1 he needs)
      You dont want to see a heart (he needs pot odds of at least 2.5:1~ knowing that you would bet on the river as well)

      Normally we advice not to play draws aggressivly, but it's not so bad, so well played. On the turn bet more as you already made your hand. That way your river bet is not an overbet and can be called more easily. Also you produce worse odds for him to call if he's on a flush draw.

      Nice hand though.

      Ok, thanks.
      I'm starting to understand that you have to set the hand up for later stages in the hand, for example a bluff bet on the river or like you said keeping the pot big enough so i can get all my money in on the river so it's not an over-bet.
