      Hello, I wanted to ask, whether I played this hand the right way. Calling that min reraise on turn is ok in this spot or not? I was sure, that he has a flush, and was waiting for a board to pair, is this the right move?

      Hey ryciaga,

      what i don't like here is your flop bet...you should try to protect your hand vs possible flushes and bet bigger like 0,2 or pot bet.

      Other possibility is to play check/raise flop if you are convinced that villain is going to cBet since there is not much possibility that he has flush on board + you still have many out for your full house.

      I am not convinced about turn but i think you should play it check/call since also implied odds are here quite high if for example villain already has flush.

      River is of course nice.

      Lets wait also what our pro judge think about that hand.

      Hello ryciaga,

      Flop: Why do you donk here? Why don't you just let him CB.

      As played
      Turn: Don't really like the idea of betting here. You will even rarely get from a lot worse, neither the Bet size doesn't work, neither you wont be able to Call if he raises really big since we can't be sure that we have implied odds. Neither I don't see how many worse hands will Call you here, he has to be really bad.

      As played
      River: Why don't you just Check/Raise again? He had aggression on the turn so most likely will bet also the river if he has a hand.

      Best Regards.
