      Hi, I had this hand last night and feel I played it badly and would be interested in yor opinion -

      Cassava Poker $0.15/$0.30 No Limit Hold'em - 10 players - View hand 517587
      The Official DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter

      SB: $31.11
      Hero (BB): $50.71
      UTG: $6.40
      UTG+1: $39.84
      UTG+2: $28.45
      MP1: $42.78
      MP2: $28.95
      MP3: $31.21
      CO: $4.50
      BTN: $5.45

      SB Stats are 21/8/33 after 873 hands
      UTG stats are 47/15/51 after 154 hands

      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero is BB with A :heart: T :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.60, UTG+1 calls $0.60, 6 folds, SB calls $0.45, Hero calls $0.30

      With just a min raise from UTG and 2 callers I am getting 7:1 and have a suited A so decide to flat call. Not sure about that decision but was reluctant to 3Bet vs a UTG raise with a marginal hand OOP.

      Flop: ($2.40) A :diamond: 8 :diamond: T :diamond: (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets $0.60, UTG+1 folds, SB calls $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      I like flopping top 2 pair but not on a monochrome board so play check call his small bet.

      Turn: ($4.20) T :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets $0.60, SB raises to $2.10, Hero raises to $4.20, UTG folds, SB calls $2.10

      Now I'm happy as I have the 2nd nuts and expecting UTG to lead I check again. He leads and the sb suddenly wakes up and raises. With all this interest i decide it is time to get properly involved and put in a min raise myself.

      River: ($13.20) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $6.30, Hero raises to $18.60, SB raises to $25.71, Hero calls $7.11

      The sb's bet tells me he has something, probably a slow played flush so I raise, he shoves and I call.

      Should I have led out on the flop?
      Would I have risked being bet off the pot by a flush?
      Would a bigger raise on the turn have been better?

      Thanks in advance for your always useful advice and comments.

      I would likely c/r that small bet, since it is hard to flop flush at holdem and he can easily bet/shove there AK with kd
      Since you have second nuts and hard to put anyone on AA, so I think you should get all the money in the pot if you can, so I´d raise turn to 6$ to bet 3/4 pot on the river
      river: shove. he´d b/c whatever he´d lead out is it either flush or smaller boat
