      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:spade: , 8:spade:
      3 folds, CO calls $0.50, BU calls $0.50, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($1.75) K:spade: , 7:heart: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BU folds.

      River: ($11.75) T:spade: (2 players)
      Hero raises $2.75 (All-In), CO calls $2.75.

      Final Pot: $17.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a flush, king high (Js 8s)
      CO shows a full-house, kings full of sevens (Kc Jc)

      CO wins with a full-house, kings full of sevens (Kc Jc)

      "Lets push because villain will never have a king or a seven and my flush will always beat the pocket pair or ace high that he obviously has...."

      That might be what i was thinking when i played this hand..... ?

      a flush is pretty weak on a double paired board. I think betting on the turn is a pure bluff, as you should be drawing dead against hands that call you.

      Well check/fold untill the river as I dont like paired boards ;)

      Too many hands beat you so you should have check/folded out of position

      I vote for check/fold till the end.

      J high straight is a scary flush to draw for even if the board wasn't paired. Try to save yourself from difficult decisions on the turn during free plays and fold hands that have a weak-medium showdown value.

      A c-bet would be acceptable if for example you were attempting to steal, got called and then you bet the flop since you have a few outs to save you in the event of being called. But since turn doesnt help you, a C/F from then on would be the way to play.

      Standard play is to check your draw, or maybe make a small block bet, not reccomended in SSS for sure. Plus, take a look at CO stats, he looks TAG, and his call at close to 2:1 pot odds should indicate his hand strength to you. The player in the BU has stats more like a LAG fish, hook that one instead.

      Hi daphunk,

      I dont like leading the flop, when you want to play your fdraw aggresive which i dont like against 3 villains with j high then checkraise.. I would check and draw cheap against a potsize bet i fold.

      Best Regards Ysessa
