      Hi there,

      Since two weeks i am playing fl5cd on pokerstars, at the 0,10/0,20 limit and would like to have some advice. when you have like 269AA and they are al spades except ofcourse one ace, would you try to get the flush or discard 3 cards?

      Does it matter if it is a multi way pot or not?

      Discard 3 as a rule, even in multipot, but if its evident that somebody have trips+ try to make flush.

      That depends of so many factors that I can not mention all:

      1) How many players are in the pot?

      BTN: Raises
      SB: Re-Raises
      BB: YOU

      (NO INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLAYERS)

      Discart to the flush

      (BTN AND SB ARE AGRESSIVE PLAYERS)

      Discart to the trips+ if you know the villain's hand range

      (BTN AND SB ARE BOTH VERY THIGH PLAYERS)

      Fold the Hand

      ---

      BTN: Raises
      SB: Folds
      BB: YOU

      (NO INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLAYER)

      Re-raise and Discart One. Raise after the Discart

      (BTN IS AGRESSIVE PLAYERS)

      Discart to the trips+ if you know the villain's hand range

      (BTN IS A THIGH PLAYER)

      Call and change 3 and see how many cards did he Discart

      ---

      BTN: Folds
      SB: Raises
      BB: YOU

      (NO INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLAYER)

      Re-raise and Discart 3

      (SB IS AGRESSIVE PLAYERS)

      Re-raise and Discart 3

      (SB IS A THIGH PLAYER)

      Call and Discart 3


      OTHER FACTOR

      2) How the table is playing (Aggressively or Passively)?

      3) From what position did the raise come? What information do you have about that player who raise? What kind of player paid or Re-raises?

      4) Do you think that after the discart the check-raise strategy will run successfully if you just change one and get the flush?

      5) What kind of kickers do you have? 9-6-2 are very low kickers!

      Thank you very much, i think it will make a differrence in my game because i was chasing the flush draw too often.
