      Usually I stay away from raised pots with small suited connectors, but sometimes the pot odds still suggest a call preflop(?)

      The opener gives up on the hand on the flop, oop against two callers. This, and his initial mini-raise are all a little suspicious, but usually this is exactly what it looks like: he's got nothing, so I try to steal the pot(?)

      When I get called, I'll give up on the bluff, but the flush and oesd getting there on the end gives me a great opportunity to fire a second barrel at the pot(?)

      No way he'd check top pair on this board three times, and I can't put him on the flush or straightdraw; he'd bet it on the end, oop, 9 times out of 10 right? I think he's got a AQ, JQs, TT or something, or A-high, like AT or something he can let go easy.
