      I would raise it on the flop because of all the draws that are out there. Turn is ugly , KQ got there , TJ got there , a bad played AK or even K9 maybe , that`s why I like to raise it on the flop to see where I stand and to protect.
      .
      As played I think I would also make a crying push

      I think raising flop and getting it all-in is likely better than calling flop and then shoving turn, because you´re not really folding there two pair.
