  1. Because I was OOP I did consider this and would often take that line and get it in on the flop. I don't mind my play as was although it is slightly passive.

  2. So you're check folding the turn?

  3. If I have 10 outs then on the turn I am a 20% favourite to win on the river if he has a flush.

    I am only calling a small bet here that is less than half pot. Any decent size bet on the turn will force me to fold.
