      I was thinking,what was the best move against this fish?I think i made a mistake with the all in,because i have no fold equity and i dont even have to protect my hand.If i were there again i think without any special reads i would fold.What do you think?

      MP1:53/3 30 hands

      Hello juhiimi,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      That's exactly the problem. That with shipping you ain't gonna make him fold any hands here while he pot size bet is definitely a very strong hand. Therefore I'd rather even save the $s and just call and reevaluate it on river. We can very likely expect to get paid if we even do hit the flush.

      Best regards.
