      Pre-Flop: I think im probably letting this one go but its marginal and a complete isnt too bad with two limpers.

      Flop: Fine

      Turn: Why check? no need to slow play or wory about the higher flush, bet for value and a little protection against the ace of hearts in case another heart comes on the river. I'm betting about $0.2

      River: I think betting the turn avoids this situation as he senses weakness by your check and trys to steal so i would have continued to bet the river if the turn was called with another 2/3 or 3/4 pot bet. As played i think im going broke here because all thats beating you is Ax of hearts and this would have bet the turn.

      Hello,

      Preflop: It's marginal but it's possible to complete, depending on your style.
      Flop: You could also bet pot.
      Turn: Bet again pot, you have to extract value!
      River: Now you should have the pot big enough to just Bet pot again and Call the shove very easily.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      could i ask, what would our line be in this situation if we bet pot and got raised on the flop, or even the turn?

      i find when i meet resistance is one of my biggest leaks !!!

      on the turn we move as it is the same as now on the river... getting raised on the flop is another thing... i would probably just let it go if the raise is very big - e.g. half of my stack, or even more as i assume my hand is only good if i catch the missing heart --> pot odds fold

      We could just reraise him because we have the nuts, TP plus flushdraw but just Calling ain't wrong. If we get raised on turn then we are going broke, we really can't fold 2nd nuts, maybe only with very good reads.

      That happens, nothing to do. Same as you hit a set on flop and opponent has a better set. You will very good reads to fold such hand. So don't worry about the lose, you will be okey in long run.

      True, thats poker :] . To be honest that pot didnt make me nervous at all, I just could not fold second nuts without super-accurate reads. I created this topic to find out what could i do better preflop, on the flop and turn, and you guys explained it. Ty guys ;]
