      I really think I should have played this hand in a more aggressive way, specially on the turne where I had TP with a not-so-bad kicker and still a Nut Flush Draw, am I right?

      i think it's all fine as played. :f_biggrin:

      drawing to the nuts, you don't want to get 3bet and can keep his worse hands in play. you're ip so you can pick some river value if you need it.

      Hello tieppofer,

      Preflop: I'd isolate to 10 cents.
      Postflop: Both ways are fine, you can take the implied odds or even raise the flop. The problem with raising is that we might isolate vs strong hands and traps. So both ways are fine to keep weaker hands in the play.

      Best Regards.
