      Standard shove on the turn is the correct decision

      i agree with swire.

      maybe even shoving on the flop would be a good idea since it is draw heavy.

      try to avoid checking in the future. with a made hand always try to get it all in.

      If people are calling on the Flop with gutshots, I bet they even call the Turn as well :)

      If you do not make these bets, you lose a lot of money. Here you lost $1 (=10bb) and that's 50% of your stack. Multiply that with 10 and you lose 5 stacks by not betting the Turn ;)
