      That strong raise from villain, probably don't mean he already has a flush, he could that with 2 pairs, top pair, set to defend his hand. On that flop I would bet more, 10-11$ and after a raise -> all-in.

      Hey WildBeans,

      there is no way I'm folding nutstraight here. It's HU pot and villain could have made the same play with 2-pair, set, FD against which you are favorite. Also, probability of villain hitting a flush on the flop is very small.

      Regards,

      So the double stack doesn't really influence that decision too much.. Okay..

      Double stack means you need more equity against the opponent, but with nutstraight you have enough against his whole check/raise range imo, which should be something like KJ/KT/JT/TT/SCs(3d4d-8d9d), maybe he also raises nut flushdraws which also contributes to your profit and maybe made nutflushes Adxd, but I don't think he wants to scare you away with that and will usually slowplay with c/c on the flop. For me this is (easy) push even with double stack, but I'll ask Gerv or another judge to have a look at this hand as well...

      Flopping Flushes is like <1% thus if u face a 1card FD u are 60% favourite.

      Since u now only got the option Push/Fold, definitly push! You beat every other holding

      I guess it's as simple as that. This unfortunately was one of those <1% cases.. losing a double stack isn't so nice.
