      Playing rush poker...I raised with AhQh and thought I`d probably have to fold to a 3 bet as I`d likely be dominated...MP3 calls.

      I have a flush draw so I bet to see if he had a hand and to put money in the pot in case I hit that flush.

      When the 7 hit I wasn`t was a bit unsure. I could bet and try and take down the pot if he was just calling the CBet. On the other hand I didn`t have anything so I checked hoping he`d check. When he didn`t I have the odds to call...Figured I had to fold.

      Correct play?

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop you cbet is good here.

      As played, I would bet the turn here as well. The 7 makes his set combos less, plus now we can make him fold hands like 99-JJ, probably a hand like KJ or so, plus if we get called we still have some equity.
