      I figured he had a flush but he had been playing very loose so I figured he could have had a worse flush than me. Obviously he didn't but should I have folded at any time?

      i would reraise to maybe.. 3x-4x his bet instead of just min raising him.

      If he reraises, i'd seriously consider a fold, but will most probably just push all in.

      On the turn you have a made hand, you can "go broke", flush over flush with 2 cards is soooo rare I wouldn't even consider it in a 3-way pot. Your goal here is to get all your money in the middle without donk betting all-in. So you will bet potsize on the turn.... but you have a customer min-betting the pot, even better. When you make your re-raise you want to do 2 things, 1st give him bad odds to chase a flush and 2nd get the pot large enough so you can go all-in on the river. So I re-raise to .4, with one caller that makes the pot 1.1 and my stack 1.5 and even better with 2 callers for 1.5 pot. In this case you get re-raised behind and at that point I lick my chops and push all-in, he will not fold as he most likely has a good hand and/or a big draw. If he blanks a big draw on the river, I dont want him to fold and escape with some of my money!
      PS "go broke" means "don't fold" not ever in this spot.

      Hi Spidey,

      No never-ever fold a flush also reraise more to prevent FixedLimit betting patterns going to happen. With a 3x-3.5x reraise, you get 1) more value , 2) you know where your at.

      Well played ;)
