      Hey guys!

      villain: 29/21/2,3 after 165 hands

      Was it maybe better to take an unorthodox line and call the raise and then donk the river? I think he might check his straights/sets behind. I thought at the time that he bought himself a free river card.

      Oh, dream flop :heart:

      I think I would probably cbet that flop. Hitting that big I would like to start building up that pot. Also, there some cooler cards that might come later (hearts, high cards, str8s cards, etc.). He might have a 4, for example, or a heart. I might be killing the action though...but if he calls, then I can slow down a little hoping to extract some more value (not too much though :D ), like check/call turn.

      As played, I would probably just call and give him the chance to catch something on the river. Also I would check river hoping for a bet.

      in terms of unorthodox lines i'd rather prefer to cbet flop and c/r turn :f_biggrin:

      he'll fold a lot, but one can only do so much :f_eek:

      I would rather cbet and hope he caught something. I like your turn 3bet.

      It's hard to get paid in full with a flopped nut flush, you pretty much need them to have a set/weaker flush or be a complete donkey. But you do have to play them fast because a 4th card to the flush kills all your action from sets and weak flushes and paired boards + villain shoves = stomach ulcer time.

      Hello RasTweet,

      Bet the flop, bet the turn and so on. Obviously that you have the nuts when you CB the turn and then even 3bet it.

      As played rather Call the turn and keep his bluffs in the play.

      Best Regards.
