[NL2-NL10] nl2 - Should have folded turn?

      Pretty much knew that I should make the lay-down on this turn. The way it was played his hand really looked like a flush.

      Could argue that he could potentially shove with a wider range, including top pair and flush draw and lower sets. However it doesn't really fit in with the way he played. In theory I have some outs for the full-house if/when he has the flush too.

      As to why I called, it was largely out of hope/frustration. Kind of hard to tear yourself away from a set when it hits, but my gut feel was screaming he has a made flush & this is throwing good money after bad.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9:heart: , 9:club:
      MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.09, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.07.

      Flop: ($0.21) Q:spade: , 6:club: , 3:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.16, MP1 calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.53) 9:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.59, MP1 raises to $1.97 (All-In), Hero raises to $3.34 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      River: ($4.47) K:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.47

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a flush, king high (Js 7s)
      Hero shows (9h 9c)

      MP1 wins with a flush, king high (Js 7s)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I don't like it that much. I'd rather just Call it on turn, we are most likely making a lot worse hands to fold. And if he comes over the top like that and 3bets it's usually the case that we are beat.

      Best regards.

      Reasoning was that I had hit a set & didn't want to give a free card to hit a flush if he hadn't allready.

      If he had checked to me, which he essentially did with his bet size aren't we missing value/protection by checking back on turn?

      I agree of course that folding to the 3 bet would have been best.
