      Preflop I limp my SC. At the flop I want as many chips as possible in the pot so I choosed to potbet it one person calls me.

      Turn was the hardest part for me:
      -Bet: and go for FE + if you hit it on the turn I win more money.
      -Check behind: and hope that I hit something and win the pot.

      Preflop and flop are fine obviously.

      I think i'd also check back the turn. The two main reasons being:

      - it would suck to get check/raised on the turn by that player, because even tho we probably have a good amount of outs, he doesn't strike me as somebody who's going to raise there without a very strong hand and we can't just bet/call the turn with these stack sizes, we'd be forced to a push-or-fold decision.

      - i don't think that guy is folding whatever he bet/called the flop with often enough on that 3h turn, he's playing quite loose, he'll call against with any 7x 8x 99+ spades he stuck around with on the flop. We'd have to commit to also firing a lot of rivers without any guarantee he's ever folding something like 8x, so it doesn't look too appealing either.

      Hope it helps.
