      Well, I am not quite sure as well) Recently, we had a discussion on how to play a small made flush in the same spot.
      On the one hand, you obviously need some degree of protection here, since opponents can easily have draws or even combos.
      On the other hand, I don`t see potential in a pot size bet oop in unraised pot. Opponents will likely find an easy call here. So if there is a chance that somebody will fire a bet - go for c/r. But I definitely wouldn`t play 100% c/r in this spot. In some cases, I would even slightly overbet the pot.

      I think I followed similar way of thinking. Still, it's nice to hear an advanced player telling you you're right ;) .
      Thanks for your contribution to my progress ;) .

      Versus Unknown I play Potsizebet/All-In on such board, if I have very aggressive players behind me I go for c/r All-In here.

      Just a question from my side, not playing NL 1/2 by now;)

      The push after the rereraise is definitely right even with the small straight i think?

      Sure, he could do that with an Overpair, Two Pair, a Combo-Draw or a Set.

      Fine. So my thoughts were right. Hope it's ok to ask such questions even if it's not my original post? I found his hands very interesting so I try to get something out of it for my actual play.

      If there are any concernes please let me know.

      It's perfectly fine to ask any questions. In this part of forum we all try to learn and it would've been a bit weird if one could learn only from his own topics, wouldn't it? ;)
