      I got a little creative with this one, since I wanted to encourage both flushes to put it all in there. am I being crazy, and are there better approaches to this spot? can I play slower on the turn?

      I was rooting on the flop "King of Diamonds, King of Diamonds!" and it worked. you all should try that next time you have two pair versus likely flushdraws!

      Hi,

      what did MP3 have? (Nutflush?)
      Weren't you afraid at least a bit of KQ?

      Best regards,
      Anin

      KQ crossed my mind, but didn't seem at all likely to me. I was prepared to go broke to it, in the unlikely event that one of the villains held it.

      I'd expect both a preflop raise from villains holding KQ, at least most of the time. I'd also expect a 3bet on the flop from top two on this drawheavy board, most of the time. Finally, there were only 3 ways to have KQ, but lots of ways to hold a flush, so I figured both players for flushdraws. Draws fit the betting pattern more than made hands on the flop.

      MP3 held the J-high flush. J-rag. BB claimed to have folded a flush, as I "obviously" had a full house :s_biggrin: .
