      Just two questions:
      1) Is cbet ok? Cause i think its not :f_biggrin:
      2) What to do if i hit the flush on turn as played, and with missed cbet?

      Looks like i got three questions afterall... :f_grin:

      I'm almost never c-betting such boards, it's just too damn easy for people to have caught a piece after just calling preflop, and since we're out of position even if we happen to be ahead sometimes the playability will be so atrocious on most turns that we'll get outplayed anyway even by awful players (since villain looks competent it's even worse), so it's no use bloating a pot that we have little hope of winning anyway.

      That would change if we had a bigger club obviously, since then we could fire multiple streets to get villain off one pair hands and stuff, but the 5c is pretty worthless, if villain gets aggressive it's never good and even if he doesn't it's usually too thin for a valuebet since he could check down better clubs.

      If the flush hits on the turn we're checking, we won't get called by worse hands because of how scary a 4-flushed board is and villain is never folding a flush on the turn, so there is no use in trying to bet.

      I don't understand what you meant with your "with missed c-bet" question, please rephrase it and flag the thread if you want to talk further about it.

      Hope it helps.

      I was wondering how to play the hand, if i didnt cbet here. But reading your post i understand that it wont change anything. Cbetting or not, this hand is a checkdown and we should just try to get a free showdown....

      Much thanks! :f_grin:
