      Your flop raise was a little large I think, no biggie though.

      I am a big fan of raising with the nuts, especially when the villain seems keen to get it in. I also don't like slowplaying straights. So I would play the turn like this too.

      That said, if ever there was a scenario where you can call with a straight this is it...you have a redraw to the nut flush and the top end of the straight so the only cards you fear are ones that pair the board. The 3rd flush card may kill your action though.

      All in all, I don't know what's best but I still shove as you did, maybe that's not the most helpful response though :)

      i think you should flatcall.

      you have the nuts with redraw and dominated FD are in his range.
      that said, not a lot of hands that can continue here... only FD and 9x i guess, and sets also (drawing to FH). but how often does he have a set? he would probably have raised flop.

      Hello RobertDaPro,

      Flat-call should be the move here rather than raise. You are just scaring away a lot weaker hands and you also have got a nuts right now and nutFD yourself. So you shouldn't be really scared of the flush. Invite the other guy come along.

      Best Regards.
