      After I played this hand I realised I probably could have got a lot more money from it.

      Seeing as he folded to my re-raise, the only possible thing calling/shoving there would be an actual flush, or a set he didn't wanna fold.

      So would calling have been the best option there? Since if another spade come out I then have the best hand for sure, and he would possibly have a 4 card flush too?

      No real read on villian

      Thanks dude

      Depending on Villain's stats you can 3B pre.

      You have the 2nd nut flush draw (because he can have the K of spade). So you don't have to protect against flush draws (if he has AKspade you are in bad shape anyway). I would C flop to let him barrel worse A.

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Since mostly a lot weaker hands will just fold on flop, then I might even just Call it and maybe he even continues with bluffs or something similar.

      Best regards.
