      Heyo, StraGus!

      I think you gave the answer yourself: if he is a calling station, why would you bet?

      Against a weak player who folds A LOT you can bet since he will often get scared both by the A and the possible flush and might fold a Q. Worse case scenario you still have the redraw to the second nut flush.

      But against a player who likes calling, either because he is bad and likes to go to showdown, or because he likes to bluffcatch, better is to just give up and check/fold there. At NL5 I'd def. check/fold - play for value and you'll be fine most of the time.

      Oh, and please don't post the results. They might influence the evaluation of the hand and they shouldn't!
