      Hi, I just had a bad call I think and I dont have my software installed so I cannot post how it went...

      Just generally speaking, I had 5,8 suited and the flop brought 2 more hearts - I needed 1 more heart to make a flush. I know my only opponet (others folded) was a loose player and I was pretty sure he had 1 pair at best.

      He raised by 10 cents, I called. The turn brought a diamond and he raised by 50 cents, I think I raised by anothert 50 trying to scare him awat(I was still sure he had nothing, he did this before) and he called.
      The river brought nothing and I was left with no combinations so I raised by 50 cents and he reraised me. I folded.

      How'd ya play a flush draw like this ?

      1st this is not the place for this tread , you should post it in the hand evaluations. Next even tho software broke you should at least give more details about you and your opponents stacks and the pot size. You can`t make right decisions without that basic information.

      If he's very agressive you probably have implied odds as long as he doesn't bet too much. I'm far from being an experienced player but i would just let him bet into me on the flop and turn, and raise the river if i hit a flush.

      Basically.Dont play 58 sooted.Simple as.
      Seriously though, we need more info to evaluate the hand properly.
      Did you put villain on a hand/range and what was the min raise on the turn supposed to represent?

      You not going to scare people away at this levle...full of calling stations its pritty basic poker. If you have a hand bet, if you dont check. Alot of players are also pritty passive so they'll let you draw for free (most of the time)...When you playing NL10+ then you can think about adding C-bets & check raise bluffs etc.
