      ----------------

      Villain was 11/7/3.0

      Was that too tight of a fold? Flush/TT has us beat, but it's such a weird line. Should I have bet more on the turn? I'm thinking that I might've misplayed this... but he didn't seem like a fishy player to me. Very weird hand.

      Hello zxc2323,

      I'd even 3bet bigger on flop, ~$0,80. Otherwise I like your fold, you are most of the time behind there anyways, therefore you made a very good fold. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Hey Veriz,

      I'm thinking now that I should've 3bet more, especially because we're pretty deep. At the time, his minraise seemed really weak though, and I was scared that I'd be folding out almost his entire range there. Raise sizing is still an issue for me - it's hard to work out what a good amount is, especially for a 3bet. Making it 60 cents seemed like a lot, but looking at it now, it seems a flush draw can profitably call.

      Thanks for the eval ;)

      You are welcome, even I'd say we can sometimes consider making it even bigger than my suggestion was. Just post more hands and we will definitely find more leaks in your game and FIX them to get you bigger winrate and see you moving up even faster. :) Good luck on tables!
