      BB wins with a straight flush, kings high (Kc Tc)

      How should I interpret his 1/3 of the pot bet on the turn? Is he more likely haing a quean or is he having a completed flush? I was thinking that he didn't complete his flush yet, so raised much to protect my overpair. Maybe I had to fold, because my hand wasn't a monster, and I should not make such big pots with hands like this.

      (I haven't seen the results yet)

      Considering the limit, your hand on this board is the nuts. It is VERY HARD to flop a flush but EASY to hit his FD on later streets. Make him pay for his draw.

      On flop raise 2x or 3x his bet + current pot size = 0.24+0.36 = 0.60

      As played, notice how with your raise he gets 0.22/0.92 = 24% pot odds to call which is pretty nice if you have a FD. His implied aren't that great because there will be 4 clubs if he hits but he prob doesnt notice this.

      I would shove turn, any less amount is just better for his draw odds. If he flopped a flush not much you can do, but you will recover the losses from this hand in the cases where they hold a FD, Q, TJ, etc

      Make a note that he bet/calls 1/3pot with nuts oop (Saw the results)
