      After the flop you need either very passive opponents or some FE to play your hand profitably.

      A wettish sort of flop 4handed => too little FE. After mp2's overbet you should probably just fold since you have no FE and will often be getting your stack in versus a dominating draw/made hand.

      According to the articles you should play your hand passively and with that overbet you definitely don't get the odds to call with your 12 outs, so I would just fold. On the other hand, if you had 13 outs or more, then you could make an easy push, because that's already a monster draw and you will hold the best hand on the river most of the time.

      Hello Jaime001254,

      I give you 11 outs because
      9 FD + 4 Gutshot - 1 double card count - 1 Flushdraw J or Lower = 11

      with 11 outs you cannot call this profitably and therefore I elect to fold post-flop with such an overbet.

      On the contrary if he bet <Potsized, it is an easy c/c and evaluate the Turn.


      Best regards,
      Gerv
