      I have so many outs, like a straight, royal flush, normal flush, 2 pair! And i already have top pair, so it is ok to go all in right? or do i slow play and hope that i get more money in , because maybe going all in scares people away?

      When a calling station raise it means he has a real hand. Most often here it is a flush. Against a ready flush you have 16% and I prefer calling and evaluating river.

      thank you for your comment

      I should have kept the pot smaller right? instead of raising i should have called him down maybe ?

      I guess call the turn since you are getting direct flush odds. Don't expect to extract any moneys when you hit though. Quite often you will have less than 9 outs, so fold can't be bad either. Wouldn't shove turn, you will get it in bad.

      I might check turn here since Q :spade: kind of kills your value betting potential. You have a lot of equity the times your are behind, so don't want to bet/fold it. Get value from worse hands on the river. Though depending on how much of a calling station BB is, betting 3 streets still might be optimal.

      This. You always need to count your outs against villain's range. When villain is likely the type to only raise very strong hands, the only outs you have are flush outs. I disagree about us not being able to extract money when we hit tho, to those players a flush is a flush and unless you really spook them by overbet-shoving or something they won't just fold a spade river.


      Hope it helps.
