      Moved. :)

      I would bet more on the flop and slightly more on the river. After he raises I go allin to get payed off by a worse flush. (But I don't play NL so wait for the experts. *g*)

      Hi

      Im a rookie but i give it a try. I would bet more on the flop to get better fold equity. I would check turn, its almost a pure bluff here being 4:1 underdog, when u showed weakness on the flop i dont think u make him fold with this turn bet especially if he got K. Reraise on the river would be reasonable since its very unlikely he got the nuts.

      First, im sorry i posted in the wrong forum :)

      Second, I never thought about that i made a weak bet on the flop. Must have been a mistake...

      As for the turn bet, im not so sure i dislike betting there. Im fairly loose aggressive...But sure a check call is reasonable. The size of the bet on the turn is pretty standard for me. I dont want to deviate to much from my original betting pattern. But that flop bet is a mistake...

      I just had the feeling he was playing the flush draw. I got scared for some reason. So i just called. Sometimes intuition is good sometimes it makes me play bad.

      Went over this in my head many times. His play dont match.

      He is either (as i see it)

      1) Slowplaying something
      2) Has a flush draw
      3) Puts me on a flushdraw and calls me down..

      I put him on the flushdraw. But if he had the nut flush draw he would have should have played it more aggressively...Or am i just transfering my own style of play to his? SO puzzeled :P

      I dont know. I was just so puzzeled by this hand for some reason...

      But i agree, Raise on the river.

      Hi Grums2k!

      As already mentioned: Bet more on the flop (~$0.15) and less on the turn (half potsize). On the river it's an easy all-in. If he has the nutflush so be it but most of the time you have the best hand here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      noboy else c/r ing the flop? why do we donk here?
      if we bet we need to bet more.
      the turn after his flop call doesnt look too good to barrel again. I would c/c, c/f river unimproved after our flop donk.
      As played i also push the river.
