      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) 9, K, 5 (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.04, CO folds, SB calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04.

      River: ($0.36) T (2 players)

      Final Pot: $1.56.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight flush, king high(T J).
      UTG2 shows a flush, king high(4 5).

      Hero wins with a straight flush, king high(T J).

      Pretty much just wanted to show this hand off, cus its so sexy, and the best hand i've had ever. not saying its the one i played best or won the most off of, just never had straight flush before :) !

      anyways, what do u think i could change in my play there ?

      Hello sebsejr,

      Flop: Bet the flop yourself! You might even gain fold equity there while you plan to Call it anyways.

      As played
      Turn: Don't like your Check/Call at all here! We plan to build up the pot here, how you gonna do it? I'd either Bet myself or Check/Raise big times.

      As played
      River: I'd even consider Check/Shove here if I see him being loose enough. He is capable of calling with very wide range here. And obviously any flush will Call you.

      Best regards.
