      This was a tricky spot for me in a NL5 game on FullTilt. I didnt even see the beginning of the hand and I pressed check/fold with my hand qj off. The reason why I even was in the hand was because I had posted, it was the first hand of the session. Look what happened

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, J.
      Hero posts deadblind, MP3 posts deadblind, UTG1 calls, UTG2 calls, 2 folds, MP3 checks, Hero checks, BU calls, SB calls, BB checks.

      Flop: (17.50 SB) J, T, Q (7 players)
      SB bets $0.35, BB folds, UTG1 folds, UTG2 folds, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BU folds, SB calls.

      Turn: (47.00 BB) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.35, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 47.00 BB.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a flush, king high (Q K)
      SB wins with a flush, king high (Q K).

      any comments on this?
      I knew that a re-reraise from him on the flop or a big bet on the turn would mean a flush or a straight. And when the diamond came I didnt really see a call anywhere :diamond:

      Do you think that my reraise on the flop is too loose?

      With 7 limpers to the flop it seems fairly likely that someone has either the A or K of diamonds (giving them a flush draw + gutshot) or that someone already has a flush.

      I think I would play this hand as if I am behind with 4 outs for a full house. Which probably means despite two pair on the flop. I would have to fold.

      As played on the flop the turn is a definite fold. The only way someone would bet on that flop is if they had at least one diamond (or possibly a set though with no raises pre this is unlikely) so now we are definitely only on a full house draw.
