      Hey guys,

      Standard pre-flop raise, on the BU with AKo good times

      When villain checks I try to take the pot there with cbet.

      I checked the flush draw on the turn to see free card and was not folding the flush on the river. Should I have played any aspects differently?

      What would you do if you had the Q Flush on the River?

      I am glad you asked this because actually I lost this hand to AcQx giving him the A high flush. But should I assume he made his A high flush, first he limped, then called. With K high you think I should have folded his raise on the river?

      If it was Q high flush I guess it's kinda the same principle - AA, KK and QQ are strong enough to push AI even though Qs get beat by As or Ks. Would the same principle apply to a flush? Given his play I can assume he had pocket pair and hit a flush but not high flush? Or do you disagree?

      Thanks,
      AKM

      I mean we dont know for sure if he calls worse flushes (4 to a flush) 100% of the time while we know he snaps off the nutflushes


      Best regards,
