      he might called pre with aq or maybe jj with j of spades or even 44 i. if he is a tag player you might be calling a full house here . i would prefer check/call on that river

      Hi Zeffke!

      I would play bet/fold on the river. I don't think that Villain would push all-in with the J :spade: or a weaker flush.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I really don't get bet/fold line. He's got nut flush. Possible hands that beats him are 44 and 88. There was a similar example in Instructional Sample Hands with a nut flush where u suggested call. I would snap call here in my limit (NL25), too many times u would see Js here.

      aq beats him too and is very plausible to have it .if he had a q he may checked his set on turn when the flush was completed and when he saw the river he shoved easily .

      yeah, I didn't spot AQ fhouse, he would probably raise with AQ on the flop thou.

      I don't think that you see the Js here too often. Would he really push all-in with it? He has to fear AQ or a higher flush. And since Hero is betting 3/4 potsize it is unlikely that he has a weaker flush than a flush with Jack kicker. If he really has the Js I think Villain would just call. I think he could have 44 or AQ here although he should have raised with AQ on the flop. Concerning the preflopaction he might not fear a flushdraw.
      To sum it up: I don't think that Villain would push here with a weaker flush. But feel free to discuss ;)

      Good luck at the tables!

      Actually I think I misplayed it with calling his all-in on the river, other streets are OK imo... You guys missed the hand he was holding though :D

      So, he either slow played his QQ, or is a moron anyway who called with Q4.

      EDIT: Or, AA?
