      nh.

      small remark:

      i dont really like your flopbet. 2/3 of the pot should be enough in this situation. I feel bas for villain, but he played his hand very, very bad.

      But for the rest, well played, nice probebet on the turn too, the flush was out there, but you still had outs against the flush, so very nice how you gave yourself outs with little less then 1/2 pot.

      He also had a very good flop. In this case it's really difficult for him to fold!

      I'd only bet 2/3 PS on the flop as this would be the betsize I'd also choose with AK or KK. The remainder of the hand is played fine.

      he should've reraise, because i would've made a raise like that (2/3 pot) if i had kdqd, and that would've put him in a very nasty situation on the turn.
