      Hey,

      was wondering if this was the right play to do. I thought with that raise he probably had flushed, but i only needed 1 card for the nut flush, and had about 8 outs then?

      Should I have just called or was I right to shove?

      Thanks as always

      Against three opponents postflop play in this situation is much harder especially on this kind of flop. I would call the flop and reevaluate on turn. Another J is very ugly card since not only T9 and flushes are better than you but also any J.
      Avoid this kind of spots and play straightforward.

      Preflop: Raise 5bb preflop if you have limper in front of you - 10c. You'll probably have fewer opponents and your rockets will hold more likely. In most of the times sb in bb fold so you're hu against mp. You still c-bet this kind of flop and I'm going broke here if he reraises me. Difference between mp range and sb/bb is quite different and also you do have overpair + nutFD.

      Quite misplayed hand but don't worry it happens. Play AA like any other strong cards, don't slowplay them or invite many people in.

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Just ask yourself, what worse hands will Call your shove there in such a multiway pot? A Jx, I don't think so, rather will fold to such a shove. Rather just Call it and hope hit your nut-flush. And of course the main point is preflop raise which is too small should be at least ~$0,10.

      Best regards.

      Thanks man,

      I realised that's something I'm not doing all that often; thinking if I go all in here, who else will call? Only someone with a flush will call, or maybe a set but that's not likely. I think if I keep that in mind more, it could save me a pretty penny or two.
