      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q :diamond: , J :club: (Comment)
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.04, MP1 calls $0.04, 2 folds, CO calls $0.04, BU folds, SB calls $0.02, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.20) T :diamond: , 6 :diamond: , 8 :diamond: (5 players) (Comment)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.09, 2 folds, CO calls $0.09, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.38) 5 :diamond: (2 players) (Comment)
      Hero raises $3.87 (All-In), CO calls $1.04 (All-In).

      River: ($5.29) 5 :club: (2 players) (Comment)


      Final Pot: $5.29

      I raised on the flop because of my immense outs with the flush draw and the gutshot, but then I made a sketchy move on the turn with the flush when I have the flush, but only Ad and Kd beat me.

      I think I shouldn't have gone all in but raised 2/3 of the pot on the turn to see if he thinks he has something too, folding to a re-raise of course. Then check folding on the River?

      Thanks for the help.

      7d9d also had you ;)

      Definantly dont maniac-shove, even with the pure nuts. You nearly wont ever be called unless you are beaten. You need to measure bets to pots to give people reason to call with worse hands, always.

      Here you were fine to play another half-pot lead in a bet-fold or bet-call line. Personally im probably playing bet-call as I dont believe cold callers in CO often have us beat here. More likely they hold JT or a PP. Speculating A-rag is pretty poor value in a 5 way pot, while AT+ is likely raising with two limpers in front to attack the dead money they represent.

      Omg lmao, I didn't even consider that.

      Thanks all for the help with this hand, I did end up winning it if anyone was wondering. Villian folded to my all in, not the best moves on my part though.

      Until next leaky play I make, see you at the tables.

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: Check/Call.
      Turn: By betting yourself here, I don't think that a worser hand will call. Also I don't like your overbet at all! I'd play here Check/Call smallish.
      River: Check/Call smallish.
