      Well played ? I was quite sure that UTG2 has set, so I was calling only for flush. But I thought that is it maybe better to raise flop and get it in there ?

      i would have played the same way. although odds are not perfect, you get good implied odds ( you got position and presumably he has a set, hard to lay down ). raise/push on the flop would be overplayed imo.

      Hi,


      I think it's fine given that you're slightly deep and UTG1 seems prone to increase your odds even more by overcalling.

      If you're confident that he has a set then getting it in on the flop as an underdog is a bad play, you'd have absolutely no fold equity.


      Hope it helps.
