      *WHAT The Deuce?* elaborate on that please

      I fold postflop, getting 2:1 with 4 high flushdraw thus discounting 2 outs already doesnt make you money in the long run.

      Hand 2:
      I bet the Turn just because there is a flushdraw out there and you want to gain value out of him.

      Actually hero has 3+:1 odds on the flop, so it's a close call with 4 high FD imo. If you think opponents will give you good implieds I would call as well, but fold otherwise.

      I dont really like the holding in this case + you mostly have to fold the Turn because you cannot keep on calling because of your stack.

      I think the 3bb is just a waste of money if you call, you are not 100% sure you have the best Flush on the Turn which decreases your EV
