      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:heart: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0,25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,25, 3 folds, MP1 calls $1,00.

      MP1 bets $0,25, Hero raises to $2,00, MP1 folds.

      Final Pot: $5,10

      Maybe I just re-raise 1$. I don´t like to see any spade and I can´t be sure that MP1 couldn´t have any pair. So I decide to re-raise directly and go all-in on the turn (unless any spade comes)

      Maybe I should build up some pot and betting 0,75 on the flop. That 9 wasn´t very nice card, but I can´t fold my set:(

      I don´t want to give the villain good odds to hit the flush, so I bet out almost half the pot. Is check an option?

      How do you play with the nut flush. I think that I maybe should go all-in on the turn, don´t know if villain calls if another heart arrives, that doesn´t pair the board

      $1 raise gives villain almost 5:1 just push since $2 commits you anyway.

      So I decide to re-raise directly and go all-in on the turn (unless any spade comes.


      On the turn you will be getting almost 4:1 if villain pushes. DO NOT FOLD as he may not have :spade: :spade: .

      2) Betting $1.40 on the turn sets up a nice size push on the turn.

      Not for me. Bet at least 1/2 pot though.

      4)Play your hand fast (ie. lead the flop at least 2/3 pot in limped pot) as a fourth heart will possibly kill your action. Play a baby flush even more quickly.


      I feel that the one of the inherent strengths of the SS strategy is that your value bets and bluffs all look alike. The logical conclusion of too much slowplaying is that your good hands won't get paid off and your bluffs will be played back at. Putting $$'s in the pot with your bad hands and not with your good is completely the wrong way around.

      1) That's ok

      2) Check behind would be a good play if there was no str8 or flush draws, here however, you should bet.

      3) If you're putting your opponent on a flush draw the bet is too small. I'd bet sth about $1.8

      4) That's ok. You can slowplay the nut flush. If you believe your opponent has a strong hand you should play more straightforward and help him put all his money in. I think it worked out just well here.
