      You did well here. You flopraise could have been a bit bigger, but you managed to get all-in with trips here, so that's good!!

      Also make a note of UTG+1 ;)

      Hi jmackenzie,

      raise to 1,7 to make worse pot odds for the flush draw but anyway no way to fold trips here nice hand.

      Best Regards

      Hello ysessa,
      I am not totally sure what you mean by making worse pot odds- and therefore making raise higher. I am a new player and would just like a more depth explanation. Thank you very much for your time :)

      The higher he has to call to see the next card the more times his hand needs to be profitable. He will make his flush on the turn 1 in 4 times thus he will (probably) win one in four hands. If you count the river as well he will make his flush half the time. His first call is not that good, maybe with implied it gets marginal (lets say UTG+1 is drawing for a flush). However when you both go all in he suddenly has 1:3 pot odds for a 1:2 draw. Which means he needs to win 1 in 3 to be profitable, and he makes his flush half the time, thus he can't lay his hand down. A higher raise would give him very bad pot odds to call in the first place and you might be able to push him out of the hand.

      If you haven't read these, I suggest you do:
