      Results follow (highlight to see):

      MP2 shows a flush, ace high (Ac Qc)
      MP3 shows high card ace with nine kicker (As 5s)
      BU shows three of a kind, fours (4d 4s)
      SB shows a pair of jacks (Js Jh)

      MP2 wins with a flush, ace high (Ac Qc)



      preflop there was a raise, i was on the bb and the pot was relatively big, so i called, knowing that there wont be any raises behind me.

      i got a pretty good flop. i wasn't too worried about a straight draw, a flush draw concerned me a bit, but i figured after capping the flop and the turn no one in their right mind would call with a flush draw (maybe if they had like 34 or 56 of clubs, but i dont think those type of hands would call on a raised pot). the pocket 8s and pocket nines kinda had me worried, but after capping the flop and turn you gotta feel that there no good.

      On the river i felt i could go for a value bet, MP2 raised after cold calling the flop and the turn hence the flat call.

      Did i overplay my set?

      what do you think?

      beting and even caping is never a bad idea with the best hand--
      You had the best hand on the flop..
      You were best on the turn too im sure..

      River is worst card in the deck for you (blaaa thats such a bad card)....that said is proly a call with all the cash in there) but even against a table of lagtards you can expect to have 2nd -3rd best hand here most of the time...

      also you should have deff played more passive OTR ..no need to bet there you needed a showdown ACAP.... I cc one bet and cf two bets otr

      as played its a crying call ... and if you had the best hand im quiting poker weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

      You're too often behind to bet this river. Check/Call is the best option. And after the check you're faced with two big bets its even an easier fold.

      Hi. I'm an aspiring limit player somehow, i play NL and I'm on a break after a big downswing/playing like crap. I'll give my opinion about the hands but more to see if it's validated by a better player... I played like 4 hours of limit holdem in my life but i think i'll switch to it.

      First hand. I think the hand is played good until the river. If you had a different position you may go for a check/raise to shake the players but that's not the case. Since there is so much action you must have at least a feeling that the river card kills you. Folding is out of the question since the pot is huge so your goal now is to see a showdown as cheap as possible. So the best you can do is to save a big bet by checking. You can wait to see how many times it's raised and decide from there. Even if it's 3-bet you have better than 10 to 1 to call.

      Second hand. Since he capped on the flop it's unlikely he's got a flush on the turn. He probably played agressively to protect something else. And since you crush that "something else" you should raise turn and call a raise and probably do the same on the river. The only logical hand for him to have a flush with would be AdKd.

      So how did i do? :f_biggrin:
