      If MP3 is a random fish I'd jam the flop. If he's a reg he just limp/called with a pocket pair and got there almost every single time. Since I doubt he'd check/fold a spade turn with a set, I don't mind you calling with the flushdraw but you have to realize that your A/K are not outs for you against those players, so this is actually a fold on the turn against a reg unless you can put worse draws in his range for raising the flop, in which case you want to shove over on the flop to stack those draws.

      As for the May Sucks thing:

      All of my good streaks and all of my bad streaks of every length and depth have had one thing in common. They did not exist in your mind. They only existed in my mind. And this is true for everyone’s winning and losing streaks. None of them actually exist. They are all mental fabrication, like past and future. Everything that ever happens happens in the present tense.

      But how can you have a “streak” in the present tense? You can’t. And therefore, if you are in the present tense, which, in fact, at this time, you are, then at this moment there is no streak in your life. There is no inherent existence to streaks. The streak is there when you think about it, and when you stop thinking about it, it goes away. It blossoms and withers, all in your mind. And when your mind invents a streak, you believe it exists, because you believe what your mind tells you.

      But the truth is, there is only the hand you are playing.

      Hope it helps.
