      6max zoom table.

      Preflop: Is it okay to just call here? I was afraid to isolate myself vs better hands since it's already a 3bet and it would be very hard to play OOP, so I just wanted to setmine.

      Postflop: Despite the flushdraw I checked on the flop because I thought the pfa would cbet. On the turn though, I was afraid of giving away a freecard. I don't know if the sizing is good, but on the river the pot was big enough to get it all in.

      Edit: If another spade cards was to fall on the turn, would my line be bet 60%/fold? What if the flush was made on the turn (as played on the river)? Still a shove?

      Hi Marlie,

      Preflop: What do we know about UTG? We do get ok odds to cold call if UTG mostly calls and doesn't ship over the top.

      Postflop: I wouldn't slowplay the flop. There's already a big bet and a call so I'd just raise there.

      The PFA would rarely ever bet without a hand there so calling may get you to lose value when scarecards come down.

      Okay thank you. To how much blinds should I raise, about 4 times his bet because he has a caller?
      And if a king or an ace came, could I still go all-in to get value from AK/AQ?

      Since the pot and bets are already big a 4x raise would just be a shove.

      I'd actually make it small and ship turn if called. Small would be 2.5 or so.
