      EASY raise flop for me. I 2bet/call $0.70 or so. You have sooo many outs. OESD+Flushdraw.

      Hi Gregor86,

      SB opencomplete is very weak hand so you might consider raising 4BBs preflop in order to win the hand directly, villain will fold most of the time and even if you get called you have position postflop and can outplay your opponent. Although checking is no mistake.

      As played, you have a monster draw on the flop(FD + OESD = 15 outs), meaning you have more than 50% equity against the opponent and are ahead with your hand on the flop. Therefore you want to put money in the pot as soon as possible, because on the turn your monster draw is worth less if you don't hit because there is only 1 street left for you to improve. So, reraise flop to 0.7-0.8$ and push to 3-bet or push any turn.

      As played flop, turn is well played.
