      BB wins with a flush, ace high(3 A).



      Can I ever fold here ? There's literally ONE card in the whole deck that I don't beat. I could easily see a lot of players shoving a lot worse in this situation (as a bluff or not).

      Hi Elda,

      Preflop: looks fine although I'd steal for 3x here.

      Flop/Turn: Flop cbet as a semibluff is fine but once we get called and the 9x comes down do we expect villain to fold anything else?

      I think that we can even ck/fold here without the NFD. But bet/folding is better than ck/calling.

      River: Yes, one card beats us but we forget how many combinations that comes in, especially for someone defending in BB vs SB steal.

      For example AhQ is 3 combinations. AhJ the same, etc.

      So I would also bet/fold (or do we expect him to shove a Jh or bluff?)
