      Hi Spidey!

      I prefer raising to $1.25 preflop since you have to let him pay more to play this hand. Also with a bigger size, you let him fold a lot more preflop thus winning you the hand uncontested which is awesome as well!

      As played, I push the turn as you said. I got a straightdraw + flushdraw now which gives me as good as 30% winning chance. And you already invest $2.5 into a pot of $5 (If he calls that's more) so you are doing good here :)

      Best regards,
