      MP2 raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.15) J, 8, A (2 players)

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, jack high(5 4).
      MP2 shows two pairs, aces and eights(A K).

      Hero wins with a flush, jack high(5 4).

      I didn't want to scare him away on the turn - by raising I would basically turn my hand face up, so I just called. Did I play the hand correctly?

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Preflop: Would rather not advice to just flat those low suited connectors, they are very difficult to paly and even if you hit your flush you just NEVER-EVER know where you stand.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, FD got there, FH got there, so how many hands do you really beat? The guy has to be bad for come up there with a lot worse, so river is really thin shove if at all.

      Best Regards.
