      It's a pretty tough spot imo. Your stack is to small for a half pot contibet, yet so big you pay better hands too much with the push. Maybe you could still contibet for half the pot and fold to any resistance, since your move could be seen as slowplaying a strong hand and the hands that didn't hit that flop strongly would probably fold anyways.

      It's not a perfect solution, but is what I'd do by instinct.

      Hey enemaze,

      not c-betting is too weak imo. And considering the board is quite draw heavy I would prefer to push than make smaller c-bet, since normal c-bet would be half your stack. And I don't think half pot c-bet generates enough FE on NL10. Besides you still have gutshot and 2 outs for a set if you get called by better hand.
