      Hi,


      I usually just bet pot on the flop, it has more fold equity which is important because we have nothing as of yet, plus it builds a bigger pot against the fish in case we hit our draw.

      As played turn is fine and so is the river. When a fish calls for two streets and check/minraises when the flushdraws get there, we're not thrilled with our 9-high flush, just calling is fine barring a read that this guy is completely insane or wouldn't play a flushdraw like that on earlier streets.


      Hope it helps.
