      Would you have taken the check on the flop as a warning sign of a monster?

      I think i played this one badly postflop, should have folded after that monster flop and the flush draw. I was convinced he didn't have the flush though, and i was right about that at least.

      You might want to post your hands in the right section,
      Hand #1 JJ
      No, the check is often weakness and a c-bet is good move, and considering villian raise/called the flop the only card you need to fear is the A. Think about this... he hits a set maybe 1/5 hands and he invested $1.1 preflop. he will thus pay you $4.4 before he takes your $2.2 again.
      Hand #2 TT
      Played perfect, he hits his gutshot also 5:1 only this chump is paying the full $2.25 and will pay you $9 before he takes your $2.25
      Hand #3 AJ
      Again a limpcaller, all-in is +EV for sure, so easy push.
      Hand #4 JJ
      Played perfect, all in preflop. After 100 of these your JJ or QQ will be +EV vs AK.
      Hand #5 KK
      Pre-flop play is perfect, you notice the limp/caller again has a small PP. Post flop play is horrible. You are in a 3-way pot and you have to assume you are up against Ax and PP. The PP you dont care about as you take his money 80%. If you have the K :spade: in your holdings then you can consider a push, or against only one villian... other than that I am check/folding the flop and pushing a blank on the turn.

      Keep in mind I am not a hand judge, I have only played alot of hands NL10 on fulltilt.
