      calling makes no sense here, when you are ahead you want to protect and dont want to see a 4th :spade: easy shove

      its too drawy for calling and I am quite sure, that we have the best hand here, so protect.

      I really don't understand why are we so sure, that we have the best hand here.

      As a begginer i don't see a reasons for raise and in that situation i just want to fold.


      Can somebody explain me why me should act here as we have a made hand and why we want to protect it?



      Thanks a lot.

      Well one can assume that the probabilty of someone calling you with Q together with another , the highest possibilty of a flopped flush is a Royal Flush (Q:sJ), other holdings are 89s etc.etc. but the probabilty that some hits a flushboard (monoboard) is roughly 1%~ therefore we have to protect against any that can come on the Turn or River because % probabilty that someone has 1 spade in his hand is significantly bigger than 2 in an opponents hand :)

      I didnt knew this percentage before although I should learn this by heart (flopped flushes probabilty etc.)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Flopping a flush is quite small in terms of probability so flopping a royal will make it even close to zero% but it is either 1 spade or 2 spades or some kind of donkeymonkey move :O
