      Hi All,

      Another one of my biggest pots lost yesterday.

      When the turn (river I meant) comes a third Club on the board, should I be seriously thinking about the possibility that villain has the flush?

      How do I know if he's playing a flush draw up to that point?

      Should I have gone broke here?

      Thanks!

      it's simple in micros - when a draw completes and they shove big $$$ into the pot, they ALWAYS have it. just believe them and fold.

      actually you may catch a bluff eventually, but don't get too excited about it. just believe them.

      Hello sp3d01,

      You are never-ever going to be ahead on the river, even 9x hand beats you. Easy fold, also vs the huge Bet.

      Best Regards.

      thanks guys for the advice :)

      but surely I can rule out him holding 9x? would he have called my preflop bet with 9x? In my opinion I doubt it, possibly if he's got A9 but then I'm crushing him until the 9 comes out on the river...
