      Hi,

      I've had a doubt about these kinda hands from a long time. When you hit a set on two suited flop and the turn completes a possible flush, should you raise/fold or check/call? Although it wouldn't have made a difference in this hand but I am concerned about how to handle the turn, I was expecting him to have two :club: s.

      UTG+1: $3.64 (72.8 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.77 (95.4 bb) 35/20/2.5/11.1/20

      River: ($2.95) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.82, UTG+2 raises to $3.32 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.50

      Results: $9.59 pot ($0.47 rake)
      Final Board: T 4 2 A A
      UTG+2 showed T T and won $9.12 ($4.35 net)

      Bet/fold on turn. If villain has a flush he normally will raise you. If he calls I would shove on the river because i hit the full-house. Just unlucky that he dominates you.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Flop: What's the reason for donking here in here first place?

      As played
      Turn: I would just continue betting, we might still need to protect our hand and if we get raised then most likely we are behind anyways.

      As played
      River: Most likely I'd just ship it directly.

      Best Regards.

      I donk bet because I feared a check behind and a completed draw on the turn. I wanted to protect my hand which is why I donk bet.

      Yeah, it's fine but often times if we expect the opponent to CB in those spots with high % then rather just Check/Raise.
