      Hey,

      Preflop is well played. On the flop, we have two options - either bet, as you did, if we think opponents are capable of folding pairs to multiple barrels. Or we can check behind and try to get to showdown with our nut-no-pair.

      Without the back door flush draw, I like checking back better since now we turn nut-flush-draw 20% of the time and have very good equity to barrel.

      Nh & wp!
