      u've played fine , but u'r re-raise was huge . U had the nut flush :club: draw and a pair , why re-raise so much ? i think u could even call on that board and slowplay .

      uhh , that's a hard one . I know it wasn't easy for you but i think the best choice there was to Fold . Apart from the flush that your opponent could've made on the turn (ussualy in low limits raises on turn signals a strong hands), a lucky Q10 or pokect Jacks can have u beat . Since u still went all-in , u could've done that before the turn .

      maybe check call on the river was better

      I actually raised small imo. There was a small bet and the pot after mp2 called was ~$6

      Shoving on flop is a option. But the turn gives me 13 clean outs, enough for a profitable AI imo. I have the nut flush-draw and top 2 pair, any diamond or A,K gives me the best hand, if I don't have it already.

      I don't think a flush was on the opponent range there, because he wouldn't have raised me on the flop, but call instead (and still not get good enough odds).

      you have the nuts here. Nothing much you need to protect against so I'd raise smaller for value and less FE to around 2.5$

      you have to protect your hand on this drawy board. there are to many cards we don't want to get on the turn. If has QT let it be. bet/shove

      edit: As played on the flop either shove or fold. and yea after you bet you have to call that with the NFD for those odds.

      Hard to tell with out any reads but I don't think he is bluffing there too often. Odds are good tho I think we are beat more then 2.8:1. Since it's FR I'm probably folding it and hate myself.
