      I thought i could shove after then minraise if fiver completes my FH. I was 95 percent sure he got flush. And we were both deep also he was fish. I think it was mistake to bet turn. I could rather check-call. Because he is chaser. He loves to chase flushes

      This is a pretty ugly spot. I don't hate the flat pre, especially if you know that there are fish who are going to call behind you and you will likely play your hand multi way post flop. KTs plays pretty well in these types of spot.

      Like the lead on flop too with top pair as there are many draws. I think bet folding the turn is pretty weak considering it's a min raise, so I would probably call and reevaluate river. When he bets $2 it's really awkward. Getting a decent price but really can't see him showing up with much we beat. Maybe K6 or K3 depending on how bad a player he is but I would doubt it. I hate it but would probably just have to fold :(

      Nice hand.

      Edit: I also don't think that checking the turn is an option. Losing too much value against Kx which he may check behind and effectively turning our hand into a bluff catcher on the river.

      Don't limp on lreflop. Flop ok, turn bet/fold.

      He didn't limp, he called a raise. You really think he is polarized to flushes on the turn? I don't think we can fold to the minraise and think, 'oh well he only ever has a flush here'.

      Hello Tatarken,

      Nah, overall seems to be fine. As you said he is a fish so which means that you can easily even Bet for value vs other Kx hands or even protect from 1card FD.

      Best Regards.
