      Bet more on the flop, near potsize because there are a lot of draws out there. Flush and gutshot straight.

      Turn: Against a shorty its hard but i think check call. There is a chance that you will get to see a free showdown and if the dont bet the turn then its very likely that they were not drawing. But then again the flush draw is still out there so this is a tough one. I will wanna see what one of our lovelyjudges has to say.

      I bet $1 on the flop and shove the turn.

      C/C makes no sense, all you achieve by checking is giving all weaker hands a freecard and having to call an all in from stronger ones anyway, so I prefer shoving myself :tongue:
