      Hi all,

      Would be interested to see what you have to say about the following.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $1.20
      MP3:
      $1.13
      CO:
      $5.01
      BU:
      $5.48
      SB:
      $4.09
      BB:
      $4.00
      UTG1:
      $4.42
      UTG2:
      $4.20
      MP1 (Hero):
      $4.79


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 5, 5.
      2 folds, Hero calls $0.04, 5 folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 2, J, 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.16, BB raises to $0.27, Hero raises to $4.75, BB calls $3.69.

      Turn: ($8.81) 7 (2 players)


      River: ($8.81) A (2 players)


      Final Pot: $8.81.
      Results follow:

      BB shows a flush, king high(T K).
      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5 5).

      BB wins with a flush, king high(T K).
      Hero wins with three of a kind, fives(5 5).

      I didn't have him on the flush on the flop, but figured he probably has a diamond in his hand, probably the A or a hand like K/Qd Jx.

      So, should I have gotten away from this when he was willing to raise it all the way up on the flop given we were both deep stacked?

      Hello JimGodders,

      Welcome to the NL 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!

      Well, of course we could consider playing it other way if we would know the opponent. We could also just Call and reevaluate it on turn. But at the same time when we expect him to play Jx+draw or whatsoever hands this way then I'd just 4bet and try to get it in. Although I don't like that much the 4bet-shove.

      Best Regards.
