      Is it okay to raise the turn to protect from flushes?

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      UTG: 100 BB (VPIP: 38.00, PFR: 34.00, 3Bet Preflop: 22.73, Hands: 51)
      Hero (MP): 163.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has T:heart: J:heart:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) J:spade: 6:club: 2:spade:
      UTG bets 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB

      Turn: (13.4 BB, 2 players) 3:club:
      UTG bets 6 BB, Hero raises to 17 BB, UTG calls 11 BB

      River: (47.4 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      UTG shows Q:heart: J:club: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 70%, Flop 85%, Turn 93%)
      Hero mucks T:heart: J:heart: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 30%, Flop 15%, Turn 7%)
      UTG wins 45.4 BB

      Hi Marlie,

      Preflop: I rather 3-bet bluff MP vs UTG. I think calling is a bit light without much info on villain despite him appearing loose pre.

      Postflop: As played you aren't raising to protect from flushes but rather to get value. Protection is a by product and i do think your raise is fine.
