      Well played. Bet draw on flop was good. There's no point to think he's on fl draw too.

      Sometimes when you stay in BB with one limper only, you can raise PF with suited gappers if your opponent plays many hands and can fold PF with 87o for example.

      I would play this hand exactly the same way. Flop play is good imo, u got descent draw and a scare card on the board, good enough to bet.

      Hi Philipvw!

      I agree with Fizoloff and rubysilesia. Nice hand! If you lose to a higher flush: so be it. But he can also have two pair or even a set.

      Good luck at the tables!
