You are calling 29bb into a pot of 150.5bb?

I think as sucky as the board ran out I am making that call. I probably make the call even if it is a little bigger too to be honest but I think we have to call here dont we?

EDIT: I probably shove the turn. The pot is such that if we bet the turn we are pretty committed to the pot. It might be an overbet but if he is drawing then he will call that if he is calling a slightly smaller bet.

Yeah, I was getting 16% pot odds.

Hmm, shoving the turn would have been better it seems.

I mostly like the way you played this hand braveslice.

I might be tempted to raise slightly bigger on the flop, to make a shove on the turn a bit easier to make. Whether you make the raise 3x or 3.5x probably won't make any difference to villain's calling range.

I agree with bhoy that shoving the turn is probably best - you're going to be pretty much committed anyway, so you might as well extract as much value from the hand as possible while you are still likely ahead. Even if villain just got there with 54 (is he really raising UTG with that?) or already had T8, you've still got 10 outs.

The worst possible card comes on the river, making flush draws and some pair + straight draws come through.

You're being laid 5:1 pot odds, so you've got to be ahead here more than 17% of the time to make a profitable call. I doubt this is the case, so I like the fold.
