      Hi,

      On the flop you have an OESD combined with a flush door, that's 15 outs, plus you have the pre-flop initiative as the preflop aggressor.

      The fact that villain donks to you, shouldn't bother you at all with such a strong draw, best to raise to flop to like $0.99.

      I guess villain holds here A :heart: K :heart: or K :heart: Q :heart: kind of hand? That's most likely the worst hand you could be up against, because now half your outs are gone..I don't know if you have any history with this villain, but either you give up on the turn if he calls you flop raise, or either you go all-in on the Turn, because with such a strong draw, in the long run, you will start to make a profit.

      good luck at the tables! :s_cool:

      Hello dzintars2!

      Welcome to nl 10 forum.

      I like your 3-bet pre-flop to put pressure against HJ wide opening range. I personally prefer getting all-in on the flop or shoving on the turn, since with shove you always have fold equity and don´t have to worry making your hand. Flush over flushes happen sometimes and you can never really fold your hand on the river (most players would have got all-in on the flop)

      best regards,
