      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      CO: no reads
      Guessing this was a little spewy even with two overcards and nut FD. Do I have FE?
      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, 9.
      MP2 posts deadblind, MP2 checks, MP3 calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.70, 4 folds, CO calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.8) 6, 5, 3 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.20, CO raises to $3.00, Hero raises to $6.20, CO calls $2.20.

      Turn: ($13.2) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($13.2) 4 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $13.2.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fives(Ac 9d).
      CO shows a flush, queen high(Qc 4c).

      CO wins with a flush, queen high(Qc 4c).

      None whatsoever. His raise is totally committing, best you can hope for is him having some kind of dominated naked KcX QcX. Once you 3bet you have to call it off obviously.

      That being said, you can't just call his raise, and you're asked to risk $4 more to win $4.2+4, so you're getting a little more than 2:1, which is marginal but still good enough with the nutflush draw with 2 streets left to come against a composite range of some top pairs/77-88/sets/flushes/the occasional 4x. If you opponent was tight you'd need to fold against sets/flushes, but against a guy running around with 60bb i very much doubt we can give him such a tight range.

      Hope it helps.
