      Bad play or bad beat ? i thought that when i hit flush i have the best hand and player could shoved with something like three of a kind or two pair.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2.94
      MP1:
      $6.4
      CO:
      $5.03

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9:diamond: , 4:diamond: . CO posts a blind of $0.02.
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO checks, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.07) K:diamond: , 8:spade: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.07) 6:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, CO folds.

      River: ($0.23) 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, MP1 raises to $6.30 (All-In), Hero raises to $2.84 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $9.37

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows four-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8c)
      Hero shows (9d 4d)

      MP1 wins with four-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8c)

      His line here does look very strong but his value range is very limited. What full houses can he realistically have? 88, 66 and 86s. Then there are the higher flushes, but since you're holding 2 of the diamonds the likelihood of being flush-over-flushed is quite small. KK shouldn't be in his range since he limped (Although this theory may be flawed because he still limped with 88) He could also take this line with hands you beat, such as A8, 89, 78 and 8T.

      I think this is a call on the river despite his strong line as he can easily take this with worse hands than your flush :)

      Hello Jaccuzzi,

      You can never-ever Call it on river. You basically never are ahead here. It's just a freeplay pot and you have to invest $2,83 to win a pot of $0,40? Not worth! Easy fold for me. No discussion even. :)

      Best regards.
