      i would assume im beat after he calls the turn bet... he has either full house or higher flush.
      not even a donk would call a 3/4 bet with a flush on the table.
      edit: im guessing he had pocket 5's or 5T

      Ye you should watch out... he could have a higher flush here. I would check the turn and river, maybe just call small bets. After the turn you are one card away from straight flush :P it's worth trying lol. But lets see what judges advice.

      I wouldn't fold here. I guess you did well. You could've been against many hands that you beat. While ssing I won't care about any higher flushes or possible full houses, 20 bbs is an amount that any trips, two pair or top pair will most likely pay you to see the showdown.

      And still you had decent odds, so instacall for me.

      Hi abundance211,

      I don't like your river bet, bet something like 2$ and fold to a raise. normally no worse hand will raise you on the river and very few worse hands will call a pot size bet on the river.


      so 2 judges 2 different opinions ;-)
