      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, 9.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) J, 2, 8 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.70, CO raises to $3.50, Hero raises to $12.21, CO calls $5.56.

      Turn: ($22.02) K (2 players)

      River: ($22.02) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $22.02.

      opponent is 27/13 with 50% steal, 122 hands, agg 6. i re-raised to try to take down the pot there. i dont know what the re-raise back means. he could be full of crap, he could also have pocket AA or a top pair. i thought i was more likely going to be ahead and decided to shove at him, besides, he may not pay me off when my flush comes. or should i have called to see the turn?

      I think usually you should have enough equity to get it in on the flop so your line seems fine.
      You may call flop and try to catch your flush, but he may slow down if you use call/call/raise line, so I like just getting it on flop. It sucks if he has higher FD, but he may have SD/overpair/set/Jx and you are doing fine against that range.

      Your hand is just too good against anything he might hold. FD+pair. It's unlikely you can ask for a hand with better equity against anything on the flop.
