      Hi all

      Should I have raised him on the flop? I guess I was a little scared of them all being spades, but ended up committed anyway.

      I was trying pot control and see the showdown cheaply.

      Thanks a lot

      I'm thinking I probably should have raised and try to go all in on the flop, even if he does have a flush, which is unlikely, I still have quite a few outs for a full house.

      pf: Don't limp. Raise it up to get the initiative and isolate against one opponent.

      Flop: It's not the hand for pot control. You have to raise it up to protect from the FD. Like you said raise and try to get it in right here. And again like you said, even if floped a flash which is unliekly you have a outs to a boat.
