      Final Pot: $14.40

      Thoughts:
      - Fold and get out preflop since I am above 25BB.
      - As played I cbet flop.
      - Pick up OESD straight draw on turn. Rule say to push with draws but does this still apply on the turn? Do I realistically have any fold equity here? Should I just check/call-with-odds instead?

      Hi Phil,


      I would cbet harder like $2.25, $1.5 aka 50% of the pot isnt enough to let the opponent fold the majority % of the time you want to.

      As played, you can either check behind to get a free card or push accordingly. It is a matter of estimating Fold equity and I dont think you can let your opponent fold with a J but that's my opinion.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
