      Hello. I want just call the flop rather than raising...Bet turn + call shove. Yes this is just bad luck if you lose to A high flush... I would call the shove on the river in NL2.. .but at higher limits, you can't exactly expect him to shove the river with worse.

      Flop raise is OK imo. You really dont have yet a hand and could get some pairs or even two pairs to fold.
      River: on NL10 I would fold it, on NL2 its close, if he is thinking, he would not shove there with T of spades. Iwould call this one also.

      Dont post results next time.

      Hi,


      I like the flop raise, with the Qs Js on board anybody without a made flush or the As is most likely gonna go away right there, allowing you to take the pot down.

      The turn card is both good and bad for you. It's good because you made your 2nd nut flush, it's bad because the only hand that is gonna bet into you right now is the nut flush. If you know the SB well enough to be confident that he will only give you action with the nut flush you can actually c/f your hand at this point (i know it's sad). But against an unknown without a full stack i wouldn't fold that hand. Since he'll only bet with better hands tho, your only choice is to bet yourself hoping he can't let go of some weaker flushes and call it off when he shoves.


      Hope it helps.
