      How do you think I played this hand? I called pre flop from SB,Knowone raised, pre 6 limped making pot $0.18 so I called. I hit the flush draw. Do you think I should have raised post flop? I checked-raised the turn with nut flush.
      I shoved my stack but I would like your comments on my play.
      Thanks

      Hi,

      I dont like completing with SSS. You will have to play OOP and it will be hard to get payed off if you hit.

      So I would shove pre-flop because of all the limpers=dead money. Often you will take it down immediately and when called you still have decent EQ.

      You can overlimp if you were CO or BTN. Then you have position and control.

      As played:
      If you decide to lead out, make it PSB instead of 1xbb and go AI if being re-raised.
      Other option would be to c/r AI.

      T.

      with 26bb i don't like the shove preflop but is not a big mistake if you do this

      you have three limpers and than it is ok to complete, but it's not the standard strategy

      on the flop we have the nutflushdraw with an overcard, i think check/raise is a good line to play, the other possibility is to check/call

      on the turn we play bet/push und when somebody raised, we go AI directly

      I think if you are not able to play such a hand postflop, maybe the push or a fold preflop are the better way
