      Fold it on flop because of flushdraw ?(

      Turn has completed my str8, however, I was still a lil' bit afraid of higher str8 with AT, but I decided to continue my aggression.

      On the river comes the worst card possible ever - Q completes FD and also gives a full house for sets. I could c/f it there, but I wanted a cheap SD with him, so I did a blocking bet. Any other solutions for this spot?

      Ouch @ that river card. I would think of a blocking bet here also but it kinda feels like it screams out "raise me i want to fold" so I'm not sure what to do here either.

      I also like leading out flop, it seems better line than start c/c
