      Playing against 2 my flush is often beat by a full house, but I don't see at what point I can fold this hand.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      True that it's hard to fold on those spots and I don't think that folding is even possible. I'd as well go broke there. Although we could discuss about if to go broke on turn or not. But mainly to invite some weaker hands should be fine your play as well.

      Best regards.
