      The results surprised me.
      The fact that you posted the hand had me believe that it was unusual, so I expected villain to show 4d5d for the straight flush, or pocket tens for set over set, both of which are rather rare -- at least for me.

      The min-raise on the flop would look to me like a teaser if you did it to me, and I would happily semi-bluff my flush draw as did your villain.

      If you really want to protect your hand, protect it!
      With the 3rd hand in, you have to go big, otherwise anything you bet gives the flush draw decent odds if the third hand calls the raise. So if you pot-size raise, and BU calls, then MP2 also has good odds for whatever he had.

      Your position sucked. You are in an unraised pot, and sandwiched at that.
      Would you consider raising your 3s pre-flop? Gives your cbet some fold equity then.

      Note: I'm no hand judge, so feel free to disagree!

      This river bet is a suuuuuper easy fold, he is never ever bluffing here and would prolly just call with hands that u beat.

      You shouldn't be posting your poorly played hands here. You should be posted them in the hand review section.

      You are on the fast path to busto if you refuse to plug your leaks.

      Read. Watch. Read Again.
