      Got a OESD on the flop against two people with a possible flushdraw for them also. I decided to play it agressively. On the turn I completed my straight but the 7 was also a diamond.

      What would be my optimal actions on flop and turn (on river I think I was commited)?

      Lol, you don't have a hand on river and there is a flush out there as well as some highcards. You can't call.

      Personally I think I would have played this draw passively for odds as we may only have 6 outs for it due to having to discount :diamond: 's that may give a villain the better hand.

      Hi RahXephon1!

      On the Turn you still have a Straight Draw, you missed the draw. It got even worse: you might be drawing dead against the Flush.

      Remember to discount outs as stated here:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/no-limit/993/#h1_5


      You only can play aggressively whenever you have 13+ outs (OESD = 8 outs, FD = 9 outs) because with 13+ outs, you have >50% winning chance based on 2 streets.

      So this is what I would do:
      Flop: check/call according to Outs/Odds (I give you 6 outs here, discounting 6 and A)
      Turn: if missed, check/call according to Outs/Odds
      River: BET if you hit, check/FOLD if u missed

      Best regards,
      Gerv
