      I'm pretty sure I'm beat the whole way here, but the pot odds are very attractive from the flop to the river.

      I'm getting 4-1 on the flop, so even if I'm sure that there's an A out against me, I still have roughly the pot odds I need to continue in the hand, since I have 5 immediate outs, and backdoor straight and flush for maybe one more out. Plus there's the off chance that contibet is air, the BU is on a draw, and my hand is good right now.

      Even on the river, where I feel villain is on some kind of ace, he could be on a busted flushdraw right? So am I forced to pay off the Ax here, since he offers me 4.5 - 1 pot odds on a call?

      I would likely fold flop, since I dot really see a lot of turn cards that you can continue with your hand and you´re likely behind, being oop.
      If you called flop then calling river is fine
