      FLOP ($1.15) 3:spade: 3:club: 9:diamond:

      Hero shows J:heart: J:diamond:

      I called in hoping to his a set. Then gave up on the flop. When the Ace of hearts hit I was actually slightly surprised there was no bet. With a flush and a straight highly possible on the board I thought that either the villain was slow playing of didn't have it. If they didn't have it I couldn't see them calling. I thought my fold equity was huge so i tried the bluff...which worked. It also seemed a small bet would look like a value bet while giving me an opportunity to take down the pot without risking too much.
