      MP3 showed A A and lost (-$1.90 net)
      Hero showed K Q and won $3.94 ($2.04 net)

      Preflop: I know I shouldn't raise preflop in this position, but considering the way the table was playing it seemed ok.

      Postflop: After the flop I got K high a flushdraw, considering I had only 2 opponents the c-bet seemed ok, the real question is on the turn, was the bet ok? Is TP + FD strong enough for me to second barrel it? On the river I had no doubt I was ahead. :f_cool:

      Sure you can second barrel. Now that you actually have a hand and that K added a flush draw, you have to protect your hand. You can get called by plenty of hands like draws or maybe something like a 9.

      Raising pre is perfectly fine :) Would bet the flop a bit bigger though, because you are up against two players.

      Interesting hand :) . I would probably bet the turn bigger also like 0.65 - 0.75 seeing as there are two opponents and a spade flush draw.

      Hello tieppofer,

      Seems to be fine, there is no point to Bet it less or Check it anyways. Just ship it vs worse hands. Well played!

      Best Regards.
