Re: should i have gone for overcalls?

On the river I much prefer a call, as it is likely at least one of your opponents behind you has a straight that they'll call with.

Re: Sooo many outs. (O/8 hand)

I'd prefer to take a free card on the turn. Even though there's a decent chance your high hand is best at this point there are a ton of river cards that will swallow up your hand (any overcard,...
