      I'd fold. Too many flush chasers on NL5 rush to risk your stack. Chasing flushes is the absolute number one favorite of rush fish. Most of my lost stacks are people chasing flushes and hitting them.

      Although in this case a call was possible with that A turn, you had a fullhouse redraw, so you still had good equity even if behind on the turn, with 10 outs on the river, this is using implied odds (you'd surely stack his flush if you hit your full house)

      Hi,


      Well, rush poker is frustrating.

      This seems incredibly tough for him to be donking for pot twice in that spot unless he flopped a big flush, it really constricts his range to just that and complete spazzes. Unfortunately since we have no idea just how dumb/aggressive he is, we don't have much to go on to evaluate the ev of going broke there.

      I'm probably folding by default but if I had any reason to believe he could be completely full of shit from the start I'd call it off when in doubt, we're ahead sometimes and if not we have some outs.


      Hope it helps.
