      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:heart: Q:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.95, 2 players) 9:heart: 2:heart: T:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.95, 2 players) J:heart:
      UTG bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      River: ($2.15, 2 players) 9:club:
      UTG bets $1.80, Hero calls $1.80

      UTG shows Q:diamond: K:club: (Straight, King High) (Pre 24%, Flop 15%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows A:heart: Q:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 76%, Flop 85%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins $5.49

      i just went over this hand again, and realized the call here is not that good.
      he could have here so much worse.
      and really with the nine coming on the river he can have only 2 hands that beat me,TT or 22 . 22 he would usually fold pre to a reraise.
      and i beat 2 pair and anystraight which he usually has here.
      i wanted to call turn and raise river but with the nine i didnt.

      my reasoning is rather that if he had T9, 99, 22, TT or JJ he would want to bet the flop to protect.
      so it mostly looks like he improved (completed some draw) on turn.

      Bet the flop for value and he could be check/folding 33-88. Raise the turn, you want to get your chips in. On the river value shove, he would not check sets on a such drawy flop.

      Hello xoshix33,

      Bet the flop is a must! And otherwise either raise the turn for value or just ship the river, he may easily have worse flushes and of course even straights. Not that many FH combos in his range which he doesn't Bet the flop.

      Best Regards.
