      Don´t post the blind from MP1

      Bet pot on flop... you don´t want to see another :spade: as u have only 8 high flush, protect and build a pot.

      How come you posted a blind as MP1? Seems an unnecessary expense.

      Anyway it's always difficult to disguise a flopped flush. With hindsight though, maybe a call - not a raise - is more profitable. Since that way villain might put more money in the pot of his own choosing. The only way you can be beaten, realistically, is if he has As, which has to be unlikely. So I don't think there's much risk in letting him see more cards (see correction below!).

      In fact, the best situation for you is if the turn card improves his hand (e.g. he already has a K or J and another one turns up) because then he'll really be tempted to bet and you'll be able to trap him (see correction below!).

      Actually, if he already had K,J and another K or J came on the turn you would be beaten, by a full house. So maybe your raise was best play afer all. :P

      Experts, please?

      I posted bb from mp1 because I just entered the table. In most cases I wait for bb but I think I just wanted to play sooner, I was multi-tabling btw.

      Thanks for your opinion, Tim64, I was thinking the same. but I'm also curios about an expert opinion.
