      UTG: $1.59 (79.5 bb)

      Flop: ($0.19) J 4 2 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12, BB calls $0.12

      River: ($4.19) A (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $4.19 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: J 4 2 K A
      Hero showed 4 4 and lost (-$2.00 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.18 net)
      CO showed 8 T and won $4.04 ($2.04 net)

      Should we raise flop or not? I guess he won't have a flushdraw that many times and I will push out some hands which would continue bettin on turn. What about turn? Can we do anything else, he can have top pairs, two pairs there which might pay off. I dont think on NL2 they are so scared of 3rd club coming that they would fold anything less than flush.

      Hello Huseens,

      Flop: Raise the flop and protect your hand!

      As played
      Turn: Why do you raise now? What worse hand pays you here? Obviously you are against a flush here and can't go broke = wont end up with profit in long run. Just Call it and reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.
