      Picked up gutshot on flop and felt it was a good spot for a float. Is this the way to play this hand?

      Is this complicated by the possible flushdraw?

      floating is fine there
      I´d prefer raising on the flop, since he´d fold better hands, like AQ, AK and he can´t barrel most of the times with worse hands
      If you get 3-bet then you can fold your hand, if he calls, then you can evaluate on the turn if you want to barrel, but also at some % he´d just b/f on that flop
