      Wanted your opinion on this one, I really wanted to call, but pretty sure I would have been beat. Maybe should have raised on flop, since that would have maybe got BB to fold, and I would have picked up the dead money too?

      The re-raise was just too strong for to call?

      Thanks dude

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      What do you mean by raising flop? We bet into the flop and got 1 call. But overall on turn I'd likely just give it up, I don't ever think like he is going to Bet there anyways with a lot worse and either not that sure if he is even capable of calling.

      Best regards.

      Oops, I meant bet pre-flop. Would that have made sense?

      Also I realised I didn't have a "plan" for betting into the flop. Thinking about it now, I was betting hoping that another club would come up so I could flush, then when it came I realised I would probably be beat really easily.

      So all in all bad play really :]

      Yep, while having position I guess I'd isolate him there. Although it ain't wrong if you just Call as well since he has somewhat smaller stack. Both plays are fine. Myself I would usually raise. :D
