      I KNEW he was flush drawing, so induced a bluff on the flop, then bet HIGH to push him off the turn, he called a large bet, and i thought he had busted his flush draw on the river, soi went all in. He snap called.

      He called that large turn bet with a flush draw and hit higher two pair on the river, is it possible to beat the micros? when the odds were stacked against him. Im now £40 down in 1 week cause of shit like this.

      thinking of just sticking to live games and quitting online, its just BS

      FYI ive already noticed the shove on the flop is a ridiculous play, only going to get called by better hands.

      How did you know that he was drawing to the flush ? Are you some kind of psychic? If yes, you should be able to beat every limit and every game... :D
      Put in more volume and suck'em out... :pokerface:

      Make it a potsize raise on the flop, around $1,10. Then if he calls, the pot is around $2,50 already and you can pretty comfortably ship the turn. As it is, he isn't making a huge mistake here (he still has TPGK don't forget).

      Hello haines21,

      How can you know that he is drawing a flush? Cause you saw the hand in the end? Why didn't you CB like a normal action should be? Why do you Check/Raise so small and give him good odds for drawing? As you said he has a FD, why didn't you protect your hand then?

      Best Regards.
