      OK, I know it's pretty badly played :f_cry: So...

      Flop: Pair + FD. First I thought "So many outs, I'm betting, raising and going broke if needed". Would this be wrong? Then I thought about keeping variance smaller so I decided to check/call, but there was bet and raise behind me, so I was in the middle and aggain I don't know what to do?

      Turn: Since I played it passively, I'm calling again...

      River: I hit my flush and think that raising to about $3.50 would be OK? For some reason I have that awful habit to turn my good hands into bluffs and be called only by better hands. That's what I'm doing on this river. I guess it's the difference between fishes and good players :f_biggrin: From now on I'm posting this kind of hands just to embarrass myself, I hope it'll help to stop playing like this :f_frown:

      Hello Oly0909,

      First of all I would like to mention out that you aren't embarrassing yourself with posting such hands at all! It's a step further to become a good player and trying to get maximum of your overviewing your sessions. Just keep posting and we will try to find your leaks. :) Always better to post the hands and get feedback rather do nothing and just play and even don't recognize your mistakes and think like "oh how do I lose money, damn I lost again AA vs 27o".

      Flop: I'd actually say I'd rather just fold it for the given reason that it's a freeplay and also our 9 high FD might be not good enough, and I wouldn't go broke here. :)

      As played
      Turn: As we went to catch the flush then likely Call the smallish bet, he is giving you great odds.
      River: Yep, as you mentioned already, rather make a normal raise, what are you hoping to get Called from? Only a better flush? :D

      Best regards.
