      I put villain on a drawing hand after his flopplay and small turn bet. I don't have a "monsterdraw" but still pretty strong hand even on turn, is it worth playing a big pot here? what if villain pushes me on turn? can I call it?

      Hi degnic!

      With this hand on the turn I would definitely go broke. You have top pair+gutshotstraightdraw+flushdraw. Even if you are not ahead you have lots of outs (who wants to count? :D ) to improve your hand. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
