      I have some questions about this hand and about general strategy related to it:

      1- How many outs should I give myself for this flush draw, if any at all, since I'm not drawing for the best hand.

      2 - Should I disregard the TPTK on the turn because the 7 might have completed a straight to someone with a 5?

      3 - What rule should I apply to discounting odds in flush draws, for instance, if I have only one of the flush cards in my hand how many odds should I discount?, or if I have two flush cards but both below J? I know there is an article of BSS that talks about this, but I'd like to know what would be the case in SSS.

      4 - I'd say if I am pre-flop aggressor than I can bet on a draw for the second or third best hand, if I am not pre-flop aggressor, then I'll only bet if drawing for the top hand. Is that any good?
