      I'm not too sure. You have about 30% EQ versus flush/set and a flip versus Kx. You might even have the best hand.

      I guess your bet is OK as long as CO can fold a K. I'd say that your FE versus K's more than makes up for the times you are up against a set/flush.
      CO could be semi-bluffing with a big :spade: in which case your bet loses the chance of stacking villain when a fourth :spade: hits.

      If you make a "std. size raise" by putting in another $9 or so then you will be committed on any turn card with possibly no FE.

      I think that maybe a flat-call and lead the turn for a 3/4psb might be best.

      I'd be interested to hear Puschkin's word on this one.

      Hi rubysilesia!

      I would just call his raise and reevaluate on the turn. If you don't hit one of your outs: call any turn bet. Otherwise: bet and raise. I don't like a push here because only better hands will call you. Although you might be in a coinflip situation including your fold equity I think it's better to reevaluate the situation on later streets. Other thoughts?

      Good luck at the tables!
