      BTN: $29.79 (119.2 bb)
      SB: $1.81 (7.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (20 bb)
      UTG: $23.80 (95.2 bb)
      UTG+1: $5.41 (21.6 bb)
      UTG+2: $28.04 (112.2 bb)
      MP1: $19.46 (77.8 bb)
      MP2: $8.78 (35.1 bb)
      MP3: $15.33 (61.3 bb)
      CO: $5 (20 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is BB with 5:club: 3:club:
      7 folds, BTN raises to $0.50, SB folds, Hero calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.10) T:club: 6:club: A:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.10) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, BTN calls $1

      River: ($4.10) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks


      As I flopped a Flush, as a SS I would go broke and that was my clear intention. I only was thinking how to extract as much value out of this hand.
      Either it was:
      1. Take your own iniative and bet/bet/bet
      2. Check/call Flop and Bet Turn

      I have chosen for the latter one but as soon as the turn card came, I wasn't thinking 'What if the 4th Club card comes on the board?'.

      So Should I just continue betting on the Turn and River and shove it whenever possible?
      You saw my check on the river and that indicates uncertainty from my part as I had no idea what to do.

      Thanks :)

      hi gerv,

      dont call minraises with hands like 53. Then checkraise the flop another :club: kills your action or you are behind. I would raise the flop to at least 1,7$.

      Preflop mistake noted, thanks for that :)

      Why do I have to c/r to at least $1.7 and not $1.5 which is 3x ?

      not gunna talk about p/f becuase you already know you dont have the implied odds.

      But on the flop i would bet atleast pot as 5 high flush can easily be outdrawn and therefore you need to protect the hand.

      Because the pot is quite small due to the min-raise a 2/3rds pot bet would still give this guy some implied odds for a higher flush, so i would donk bet atleast pot.

      Hard to say what i would do against an unknown on this limit as they would often just call if they hit their ace on the flop instead of protecting their hand. So i would probably go broke.

      On higher limits though a check-fold would probably be the best approach as most calls will just be for drawing hands. Anyways just thought id put in my 2 pennies.
