      i think here the correct action is to call if you put him on anything other than a made flush. not sure what would be fishy though, maybe all in? ;) u need to be roughly better than a 26% chance to flat here. if you put him on a flush, you have the re draw to the nuts flush. with the spade in ur hand, the three on show and the 2 in his ( if u put him on the flush ) that leaves 7 out there. statistically 3 will be held by the other 7 players, leaving 4 to hit. 30 cards left, u are only getting 13.33333% to hit, definately not great odds. even if you do hit, theres no garuntee you could get any more from him, 4 spades on the board would make him cautious! definate fold here. If you put him on a set, straight etc, you have the gutshot to hit too, throw in 3 queens to hit ( 1 held by aother player ) and ur getting approximately 23.3333% chance to hit, still not quite the 26 you need, however if you make the straight u would get more off him maybe with him holding a 9, if he has a king u could get a lot more. so here its a call. im curious as to what u put him on? It would seriously affect my call here.
      P.S Just an apology, i have no odds calculator or software to help me with the calculations. im 90% a live player and have to trust my math most of the time, so my calculations may be off a little, if anybody has the actual odds please feel free to correct them :)

      Hello RazDirk,

      I'd either 2nd barrel myself and make some better hands to fold than Check/Call cause with Check/Calling most likely you wont have the implied odds here cause he most likely isn't going to pay with 4th unless he has a strong flush himself. Nor we don't have the position.

      And yeah, Check/Raising is a spew. ;) Try to avoid such moves.

      Best Regards.

      What do you want to imply with that in the current situation?

      That it's harder to get value being OOP.

      Is a Cbet a good idea at all?
      I think it hit his PF calling range. Maybe I'm putting him on a too narrow range?

      With backdoors why not? :) But just CB once and let it go then or hoping that he Checks behind when we improve we wont really show much profit in long run.

      I don't know how narrow range you putting him. :P Could just tell me. :)
