      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, J.
      3 folds, Hero raises to €0.40, BB calls €0.30.

      Flop: (€0.8) 7, 2, Q (2 players)

      River: (€4.2) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets €2.22, BB raises to €9.50(All-In), Hero calls €5.68.

      Final Pot: €21.6.
      Results follow:
      Hero shows a flush, king high(K J).
      BB shows a flush, ace high(3 A).

      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?)
