      So he had K:sJ? ;)

      His (in this case rather small) donk wouldn't impress me on that board, i go broke regardless what he does here.

      If he has a flopped flush/set then that's bad luck he often enough has something like a pair + FD

      I agree with the others. No way to deviate from your line in this spot.

      Hey noclaninator,

      well played. For villain to flop set/straight/flush are very small chances and it can simply be considered as cooler, because villain will much more often have 1 card FD or worse Ax, maybe gutshot... ...and against all of this you have to go broke on the flop because of the odds you get.
