      Hi Mugge88!

      I think you played this hand correctly. I was thinking that you might reraise the turn but the problem is that you don't know what to do against an all-in. Call for full house outs against a flush or call because you are still in front against a flushdraw? Also a straight is possible. So I think a call on the turn and even check/call on the river is the correct play to get the maximum out of worse hands and to lose the minimum against better hands.

      Good luck at the tables!
