      Was this play OK? I hit my OESD on the turn and I was more or less commited, so I decided to push. If it wasn't the OESD it would be clear c/f, right?

      Scary Scary Turn Card. I do not like this draw one bit. A hand with a King in it has better OESD than us, a hand with an A in it now has an added gutshot and removes our K outs. What hands could be in a villains range? I think often they will be better than ours if he has any sense in what he calls your flop bet with.

      This guy isn't a good player though, 50% of hands played and 30% WTS..... Its possible that he might actually have anything. Maybe that means you should push? You have good odds.

      In short, I don't know. You only have to win 1 in 5 times to be breakeven.... For all I know this villain could be making retarded calls here 3 out of 5 times.

      On a board with flush and str8 draws I like to conti-bet full potsize. This is more than 1/2 your remaining stack, personally I would shove all-in on this flop. Sample size is low, but this villian is an obvious fish, he could have any2 cards. If he folds you have 25+ BB, mission accomplished, on to the next table!
