      Hello maheepsangari,

      Raise it right on the flop. :) We need to build up the pot and at the same time we don't want to see 4th .

      Best Regards.

      yeah that was really badly played by you and a common mistake players who are amateurs seem to make quite often is not betting for value when they have the nuts and check/calling thinking they can get it all in on the river, or that their opp. will fold to any agression on the flop. I suggest value betting vs tight opponents and check raising agressiivve opponents or just c-betting when oop. but just find whatever line you think will win in the long run and the general rule of thumb on a flush is :

      NEVER slow play it, specially in a limped pot preflop, your losing a lot of value vs weaker flushes who will get it all in on the flop gladly to protect their hand, meanwhile, you already have them drawing dead :)
