      How should I play a nut flush draw when Im not the aggresor? Is it better to check and call if I am given correct odds, or should I bet as I did now?

      Hi,


      I usually just pot out myself unless players behind are aggro enough to warrant me going for a check/raise, but people rarely fight for limped pots with marginal hands so i don't expect them to bet very often on such a board.


      Hope it helps.

      Okey, what do you think about turn, is it okey to bet again or should I check and try to take a freecard?

      Hi,


      It might seem a bit weird against a halfstack but i'd probably just pot it again, you'll get calls on the flop from like 8x and random naked diamonds that might fold to another bet but might also just pot it if you check, pushing you off your draw. If he jams we still aren't committed to calling it off on the turn.

      Even if they call again it's not the end of the world, we can still win with A-high against some other draws sometimes or try to bluff them off cheaply on the river if we think they might just bluff-jam when we check and don't feel like calling it off with A2-high. Of course if we hit we're shoving, since our big turn bet allows us to get the stacks in.


      Hope it helps.
