      CO = 43/19 (21 hands)
      BU = 52/10 (22 hands)

      I hit a pair + flushdraw on flop so I lead it. Is it correct?

      Both oponnents just call and the turn is kind of a blank card. Should I bet again here?

      What about the river? check/fold since my hand didn't improve and both of them show strenght?

      The strategy says:

      You have a monster draw if you have:
      * Flush draw + OESD
      * Flush draw + gutshot
      * Flush draw + top pair

      So although you have a pair, I don't think your hand is good enough to play it aggressively. The standard strategy with a flush draw vs. 2 opponents is bet/fold flop, check/fold turn. On the river your hand is worthless so you can only play check/fold, like you did.

      You don;'t need to put the results in as they are irrelevant to the way you play your hand.

      yes you have an over pair and a FD however what do you think of your FD, let's say turn is 9 :heart: . so you hit your flush but how strong is it actually?

      any A :heart: x and K :heart: still beat you.

      So I'll see this hand as only an overpair

      However I probably would have played the hand the same.

      As already said ( and I am just going to put this in every post I see from you ;) ): remove the results. We are only interested in how you play the hands

      As soon as 2 players call you on the flop, I do not think that you have decent fold equity (standard math in terms of multiplying the % if you need 2 independent events occurr together)

      Best regards,
