      How should i play this?
      Ofc he hit the flush there not so hard to guess altho how should i play the turn? He can have some other hands which i still want to get value from and when he pushes me all in he almost gives me direct odds for the flush....

      Would these hands you'd like to get value from reraise you allin? I think it was an easy fold, unless you know your opponent bluffs in large pots often.
      You don't have the odds to go for the flush, and your hand is behind all the hands that would reraise allin, except bluffs.

      Hello DoigteurFou,

      Nothing much we can do against such opponents, your play was totally correct! And in long run you earn a lot more money from him if he keeps doing such Calls preflop. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      He is not always having the flush here.... he could have overpair, top pair, a set and much more and he is giving me good odds vs his total range not only vs his flush range. My call of 1.9 vs his flush i think is slightly loosing play. But vs AJ,KJ,QJ,Ax with a flushdraw, 55-TT+QQ I do have the odds. I have outs vs sets and vs flushes and the pot is so big.
