      Not sure if this is a leak or not but it seems that I tend to give away an awful lot of $$ when I get the straight on a flushing board. What kind of stats do I need to see to justify a fold on my end here?

      Hi,


      Well when a loose passive 31/3/1.1 guy starts potting on a flushing turn into you this is already a pretty good sign that you might not be good. Since he could also have Ax I'm probably calling the turn bet too as I don't expect him to shove the river with a bare A.

      I'm not open-shoving the river however, if you're going to do that it means you assign him a range that you can profitably go broke against on the river, so some kind of two pair hands mixed with some pair+heart combo, with a few Ax and rare flushes, in which case you're better off stacking those hands right on the turn instead of waiting the river. This is a pretty standard check/fold for me on the river once I get there like you did.


      Hope it helps.
