      How would you play the turn ?
      I do not think, that I can check it behind on such drawy board, so just showe it ?

      You don't want to ch/ on that wet board, as he can have million draws.
      Against that player I'm betting pot on this flop (maybe 6$ into 7$ pot) and shove any T.

      your flop bet size is fine, since that would not commit you to calling shove
      I woudl likely just shove turn, although betting 14$ and calling 3$ is also fine, just you´re not folding to any river card even if it is A :spade:

      Thank you both for your comments.
      My idea about not shoving the turn (and leaving those funny $3 behind) was, that he is more likely to call such a bet than shove wich draw or some J. However now I am not sure about it :-)
