      1) preflop: pretty standard I think
      2) flop: should i fold here because the board is already paired and I could be drawing dead against FH's??
      3) turn: I'm not sure if I have to call this, he seems to be betting weak so he might have AJ as well...
      4)river: should i've called this? don't think so but still doubting... :)

      Hi Zeffke!

      I think I would push all-in on the turn. His bet looks weak and top pair good kicker plus straightdraw is good enough for me to get my money in.

      Good luck at the tables!

      You're a maniac Puschkin :D

      But ok i should be more aggresive with pushing I guess. Related questions:
      Is it ok to draw for a (nut)flush if the board is paired?
      and is it ok to draw for a OESD if there are two cards of the same suit on flop? If yes, do I have to count only 6 outs instead of 8 to make a +EV call?

      Yes
      Yes and...
      Yes ;)

      When you are drawing make sure that you calculate your outs correctly and discount them if necessary (e.g. because of a paired or suited board).

      Good luck at the tables!
