      Hi,

      Here i flopped a bad flush, but i thought it was good the whole time and couldnt fold to his raise at the river. Or should I have?

      Play hand

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3, 5.
      MP3 posts deadblind, UTG2 calls $0.10, 2 folds, MP3 checks, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Preflop: I don't mind the limp, quite a few players and a nice suited 1 gapper on the small blind.
      Flop: After flopping the flush i would either lead out strong (0.35/0.30) or check raise. There are lots of rag flushs which will outdraw you if you just check call like this, you need to protect you're hand!
      Turn: Raising is good because you're protecting your flush.
      River: I would call here. If he has a higher flush or a boat then so be it, but i would be putting him on a 7 A/K, and the ace being a :heart: which is why he has played it like this.

      Hope it helps.

      This. Definitely take another line on the flop. As played I'd bet bigger on the turn and I'm likely calling the river as well, if anything just because it's cheap and I could fathom some bad players (wrongly) raising there with 7x.


      Hope it helps.
