      ok i will try
      actually i like the way hero played the hand. i think i would have played it totally different (and worse).

      the preflop raise is standard.
      i think the raise on the flop is to let a flushdraw pay and to get a free card on the turn. then the A falls and if utg+1 didn´t hit this A its probably a very scary card for him. so hero doesn´t take the free card and bets again hoping utg+1 folds a pp or something like K8s.

      yap that is right. Like you said we have position and our plan will be to take a free card on the turn but after that Ace as an scare card we can give it a try and bet the turn and hope that he will fold with every other card (despite a K or Q of course) we will check behind here and hope to hit a king or queen on the river.
