      Q1:
      1.75 / 3.55 = betting 50%~ of your stack so Flop Push definitly! Especially you want to give them bad odds if they hold a FD.

      Q2: No way because then you are not representing a made flush if he has something like Ax offsuited.

      Q1: not necessarily
      a) your bet protects enough
      b) just because there are 2 spades does not mean at all that he has a flushdraw!!
      Q2: cc is bad because you dont want to give a freecard to a flushdraw
      just push and keep on protecting you one pair !

      @gerv: i dont really understand your answer to Q2: you dont want to represent a made flush if you think your opponent has a weaker Ace! You want him to call!

      I dont understand either :] the bottom line of this is that C/c is bad
