      With these 12 outs (and the nut FD) I'd lead out betting on flop with a pot-size bet and push to resistance.

      Hey maya1984,

      on the flop you have 9 outs for nut FD, 3 outs for GS and maybe you can count 1 out for the overcard. You have 12 outs or even more, so you can play this draw aggressively. Bet potsize on the flop and push to resistance or continue betting on the turn.

      As played, I would raise turn to 2$ so you can get all your money in on the river with your straight. And as played, you can't give up your made straight to a river reraise and you as well cannot count on your opponent to bet and play c/c, so bet/call was correct to do.

      Regards,
