      I'm not sure how should i play these straight/flush draws. Most often I just try to take down the pot once and after that just give up, because if villain called once, he probably will call twice

      This line screams of a marginal hand like a low pocket pair or suited connectors, I'd double barrel that scare card turn and maybe even triple barrel. I doubt he has anything higher than a pair of 8's so he'll likely fold to some heavy aggression.

      I agree it's worth a shot on the turn, go ahead and fire like $1 in there.

      As played i might actually also bluff the river. If he had Kx or 9x he should sometimes lead the river, and i think such a player is tight enough to maybe fold something like 8x/77-55 that he peeled the bluff with, as well as other busted draws that are actually ahead of us or flipping with us like QJ/JT.


      Hope it helps.
