      Well you had the best possible hand for that board, so good call. It looks like your opponent was all in.

      Hello CatFemale,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Preflop: Rather just fold the hand here, not worth Calling. Even if you do hit you will never know where you stand with your hand. Or either wont hit much with the hand than just TP.

      As played
      Flop: Calling here is somewhat fine, although you have to take into account that they are not going to pay much you even if you do hit the flush on turn for example. If he doesn't have a strong hand either, he is basically just folding while it's 4cards of already.
      Turn: Should be a standard fold here, you ain't getting proper odds for a correct Call and in long run you will loose money here.

      Best regards.
