      River: ($1.70, 2 players) 8:club:
      BB bets $0.81, Hero raises to $3.51 and is all-in, BB calls $2.00 and is all-in

      Hero is against a fairly loose and passive player. On flop, hero goes for a standard cbet. On turn, hero considers to be ahead after villain's another check, and fires 2nd barrel. The river brings a perfect card (unlikely that villain could have completed a full house with 8x). When villain leads out, hero considers weaker flush, a trips with Qx. Hero doesn't consider a passively played full house, since he would expect some bigger action on turn. Hero goes allin for a value. Was the allin correct play or should have hero just called, fearing the possible full house?

      BB shows 9:club: J:heart: (Flush, Ace High)
      Hero shows K:club: A:diamond: (Flush, Ace High)
      Hero wins $0.00
      Hero wins $6.96

      Hello faronel,

      If he had FH then he would very likely bet it bigger there on river as well and maybe even take stabs on early streets. So therefore your play is perfectly fine. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
