      I didn't fold to his re-raise on flop because of FD. Would it have been better to push flop directly, or either way it makes no difference?

      As a preflop raiser you play your nut FD as made hand.

      In this hand you have FD and 2 live over cards, so - and I hope I do know to calculate outs by now :rolleyes: - you have monster draw of 15 outs.

      NH and played correctly IMO.

      Hello Dandycall,

      ''I am flushing and got 2 overs for half a million $USD'' is the nuts for a SSS player postflop :)

      Regarding your question whether to push directly: $0.6/$1.4=42% so I would push it if I have to bet 40% of my stack but with this board, Bet/Call is the most profitable way to go

      Why exactly, to lower fold equity and get more value?

      Because of the board: Unlikely Villain has something + you give some chance to let Villain bluff with worse hands.

      I'm sure if you push directly he only will call with Overpairs/Toppairs and FDs or also Overcards + FD.
      Now with your cbet of $0.6, you give the opponent an opportunity to bluff you out with a wider range than only those so let's say KJo etc.
