      No I'd call the turn. He doesn't really bet very much and you still have outs. You gotta fold to that river shove I think indeed thou. Nh imo.

      Hi,


      I agree that calling the turn is worth it, he might just shutdown on the river or you might make a better flush.

      If you hit and he still shoves that sucks because he might very well have the Kh but that kind of player probably won't lay down any flush there, so in the long run you'll probably make money calling it down with the 2nd nuts.


      Hope it helps.
