      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, T.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, 4 folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.4) 3, 6, 8 (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG2 checks, BU bets $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20, UTG2 folds.

      Turn: ($0.8) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.70,

      Two questions:
      First, my Flop play:
      Was it the right choice to call? i took into considiration all the diamonds, 2 sixes, and 3 tens as outs which will give me the best hand.
      Second, my turn play:
      Was it the right decision by me to check-raise and not check-call and shove on the river? after all, the board wasn't draw heavy and if it hit a diamond than i am the one who makes the flush.

      Hey Asaf92,

      draws with 12 or more outs are considered monsterdraws and those should be played aggressively. With flush draw and a pair you can count with 12+ outs and play aggressively. So, I would just lead this flop with 0.3$ and go broke as soon as possible.

      As played, I like the shove on the turn, because if you c/c turn and c/r river you have no guarantee that villain will bet the river again and you loose value when he just checks river behind.
