should i call the turn? when i counted implied odds on turn i had 24% but my outs=20% so not that superbad call afterall but could have made tight fold i guess... now i see that by checkcalling flop and turn i would probably had better odds on turn but probably he would make potbets anyway...

btw if i hit fullhouse, i d get paid off for sure

I agree that we probably have a profitable route of check-calling this turn size to open shove the river. I woudn't start by check-caling on the flop, I think you did fine to bet. After all there are so many one spade hands tha are worth charging to see the turn and we can get value from a lot of other hands that will also check back should we check.

So way to go on this hand, I think you played it optimally
