      Piters1990 folds

      Both villains are unknowns. Jaga66 seems to be more fishy then the flop agresor.

      And again i almost overplayed my flushdraw. Or maybe not? :f_confused: Well as you can see, i have problems justifiying where i stand here and my actual outs. The villain could have AQ, AJ with A :club: . That evaporises my flushdraw and also takes one A away from my straight outs. Decided to fold here, because i was struggling to get the true strength of my hand there.

      Overall my first session at NL20 went pretty well. Had some swings, but managed to keep the green line of the graph on the upper side of the x axis :)

      I think your cbet was probably unwarranted here. Against 2 opponents on such an ultra drawy board, and all your had was a gutshot straight draw (which is meaningless since there are 3 clubs) and the 4th nut flush, which is also quite worthless. Hard to believe no one else has a better piece of this flop than you.

      My suggestion: check fold.

      since you have option to check back then I´d used that option on that board
      very likely someone has there either higher flushdraws and c/r or c/c or they have two pair+ and would c/r for value
      And since you can't b/c I thijnk better check back and try to hit your hand (either straight, flush or maybe even pair of K-s)
