      I was pretty aggressive leading up to this hand. I thought a cbet might be overdoing it. The players who called preflop had good stats over 40 hands or so. I think there have been a few people following me around on the tables. I was a big fish when I played at FT. It's the first site I joined. Of course I'm better now - been getting paid nicely since I went back! But looking at this hand my play sucked - too tired is my excuse...

      You´re playing against middlestack who could easily shove here with K high flushdraw, since he´d don´t put you on A high flushdraw.
      To me it is easy valuebet and easy call.

      Afterwards I figured there were 2 of 8 cards he could have that would beat me. So, yeah, maybe push next time. But this time he had the straight flush. :tongue:

      No need to shove, since he could have straight flush, but call is enough :)

      consider it like Q-high flush, players arent folding their str8-flush draws down there :-)
