      Here's hand #2. I went for a bit of tricksey slow-play on the flop. I hardly ever do this and I'm not quite sure why I did it here but there you go. Should the river be a bet/fold? Can you ever fold a set of aces?

      Preflop: I think 4bb is too small. Make it at least 5 or 6bb. Look at your stack depth - I think you are going to have problems putting in a lot of money in later on.

      Flop: If board had a flush draw and 2 broadways, I would probably bet Flop check/raise Turn. Given that there's no flush draw, I prefer check/call to induce.

      Turn: Seems standard

      River: this is a really tough spot. He reps a flush so hard. Do we beat some worse value hands though? perhaps some flop slowplayed sets or 66/22 or some A2/A6. I don't think we can fold for such great odds.
