      Nope. Bet-raise-shove on that flop with 88. NH, WP!

      Dont overthink things just because you ended up losing the hand. You played this one flawlessly start to finish.

      That's fine for this particular hand, NH.

      But you likely need to rethink some concepts, you're not raising to fold out flushdraws, you're raising to get it in against them as a 2:1 favorite. You don't want draws (and worse hands in general) calling getting good odds to outdraw you, but you still want them calling once you have given them bad odds.

      Plus if every time you're betting you're hoping drawing hands will fold, you will be constantly disappointed at microstakes because nobody folds draws :)


      Hope it helps.

      Hi,


      :D Make sure you're just kidding for real, even keeping such thoughts in the back of your mind can end up calling you a lot of money and slow your growth as a poker player big time.


      Hope it helps.
