Hero is getting a 30% pot odd to call with his flopped straight - I need to call $14 to win $48 of total pot after my call. What should I do? I will reveal what I did in the comments section.

    As played on the river, I think it's a fold. I don't see that a 23/6 guy is doing that with something that you beat at this point. Maybe occasionally you'll have a split pot. In any case, the important thing to me here is that you should be clear what you're are doing in this scenario before you bet on the river.

    What I wonder though is what you were trying to achieve with your turn bet? To me, this looks like a bet that is only called by hands that beat you or that you split the pot with.
