      This hand is from my local weekly cash game so hope it's ok to post.

      Info: There is a lot of straddling in the game so blind vs blind almost never happens. We also play the 7-2o game.

      SB is a friend and good LAG regular who is excellent at reading peoples body language. More than capable of firing 3 barrells.

      Hero is BB with £55, Villain is SB with £80

      £0.10/£0.20 No Limit Hold'em


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K :heart: T :club:
      5 folds, SB calls £0.20, Hero checks.

      Flop:(£0.40) K :diamond: J :spade: 3 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets £0.30, Hero raises to £1.00, SB calls £0.70.

      Turn: (£2.40) 8 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets £2.00, Hero raises to £5.00, SB calls £3.00

      River: (£12.40) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets £10.00, Hero calls £10.00


      Final Pot: £32.40

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows a flush, king high (9d 3d)
      Hero shows a pair of Kings (Kh Tc)

      SB wins with a flush, king high (9d 3d)

      Hi,

      no reason to think he would limp with better hands, so raise pf.
      I´d likely would raise bigger on the turn and also call his river bet.

      Best regards,

      I was thinking afterwards that the turn raise should have been more like £8, I ended up giving him perfect odds for the draw (doh!) Was wondering if I can find a fold on the river but his bet sizing is pretty consistent and I was sure I was ahead on flop and turn...

      We had a laugh later about how an unraised pot preflop had ended up being 160BBs big by the end :D

      He would likely not fold his pair+flushdraw even to 8$ raise. You can make it bigger to 6-7$, but since your hand isn´t nuts you don´t have to raise that much.
