      I complete from SB with a hand that I think plays well multiway. I flop 2 overs + FD but dont really want to lead here. Because of the minbet and 2 calls I decide to make a semibluff here since noone looks particularly strong here. Maybe I should just take my direct odds here? Not sure what better hands will fold. Maybe 3x/2x and some weak 6x. I bet and he Jams me on the turn. Can I ever fold here?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:heart: , 9:heart:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) 6:heart: , 3:heart: , 2:spade: (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, BB calls $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.46) K:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.33, BB folds, BU raises to $1.27 (All-In), Hero calls $0.94.

      River: ($3.00) T:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows a flush, ace high (Ah 4h)
      Hero shows (Qh 9h)

      BU wins with a flush, ace high (Ah 4h)

      Hello Meemawuk,

      I don't understand why you Check/Raising the flop? You wont make them fold anyways, rather just take the odds and hope to hit. Otherwise the turn is pretty basic, I am going broke there as well, just a cooler.

      Best regards.
