      Hero showed Q A and lost (-$0.92 net)
      BTN showed K 2 and won $1.77 ($0.85 net)

      Pre-flop I saw his raise as a steal so I tried to take the pot there. When the flush draw came on the flop I semi-bluffed. When he called and I didnt hit on the following streets I just gave up.

      Is there a better way to play the turn and river after the action on the flop?

      And should I just play my flush draw passively as I am out of position even though I have the initiative?

      Hello 0744379,

      Doubt that we can much do here. Most likely I'd play the same way, just unlucky that he hit such a card. :D Note him down as he is calling really loose preflop.

      Best Regards.
