      This is fine to go broke, right? I felt like I got lucky when I saw what he had. Would villain play this way with weaker hands (e.g. 1 pair plus FD type of hands) or does he always have a made flush or higher set in this spot?

      Hello member001,

      I am not going to fold this on those limits. Of course we are in multiway pot but he may as well have 2pairs/pair+FD etc type of hands. And even if he does have the flush we still have great outs against him. Only thing we might fare is 55 and AA but it's not that likely according his play.

      For example try putting him several Ax hands which have a diamond draw in it and then maybe even the set and as well add flushes into his range. And see how we doing against his range. Even against pure flush we should be getting pretty decent equity.

      Best regards.
