      As played I'm sure that you had the necessary equity to commit on the flop.NH.

      An alternative line could be to check behind on the flop. Assuming villain holds a decent PP or a good ace here then betting this flop is likely to yield action only from hands better than yours. A free-card in this spot is also likely to be more dangerous to him than you. He may even fire on the turn with the second best hand. If you do at any point decide to play for stacks then the already decent pot should allow you to get the money in.

      I like this line. You have toppair with a good kicker plus the nutflushdraw. There is no reason why you should play this hand more passive because you want to get value from your opponents.

      Nice hand! :)

      Good luck at the tables!
