      Hello VIDOCCC,

      You can't know that he has flush! You have to put the opponent on a range and this will consist of TP/worse sets/TP+FD/2pairs or whatsoever hands. No way I am getting away from this spot, very likely going broke as well.

      And for example you need ~27% equity to make it break-even here. And even if we do put them into such hands as we saw:

      Board: K:heart: Q:heart: J:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    31.22%  31.22%   0.00% { QdQc }
      UTG+1  67.68%  67.68%   0.00% { Ah9h }
      UTG+2   0.98%   0.98%   0.00% { AdAs }
      MP1     0.12%   0.12%   0.00% { JdTd }

      We are doing somewhat great and even getting correct Call. And of course if we even put them into a wider range we can even very easily get even better equity. So therefore I guess shouldn't be a mistake to go broke here.

      Best regards.
