I opened with pocket deuces (why not?). I got way more callers than I expected, and three cards to a flush hit the board (yay ).

I called the probe bet, with the intention of betting to scare away flush draws if the turn didn't bring a spade that didn't pair the board. I got a favourable turn, so I repotted (more or less). I figured that since most players around the .25 parts probably don't quite know when they're priced out of a flush draw, I'd smash the pot to death to get my point across. If I got reraised, I'd have folded.

I just want to know if you guys would have handled this any other way. If I did something obscenely wrong, by all means, point it out. I'm looking for other perspectives and creative ways to address this situation. Help me out!

MP3 (t3075)
CO (t6625)
Button (t5047)

Preflop: Panicky is UTG+1 with 2, 2
1 fold, Panicky bets t415, 1 fold, MP2 calls t415, 3 folds, SB calls t315, BB calls t215

Flop: (t1660) J, 2, K (4 players)
SB checks, BB bets t200, Panicky calls t200, 2 folds

Turn: (t2060) 8 (2 players)
BB bets t400, Panicky raises to t2860, 1 fold

Total pot: t2860

Raise size is to low pre.

1) You need to protect your hand.

4) You want value out of your hand.

There are more draw combo's then flushes

Raise on the flop don't wait for the turn.


a little bigger wouldn't hurt since your in EP. as for the flop id just raise, cuz i always read 200 as weakness and/or a draw of some sort. as for the other guy, hes just prob making some really small blocking bets with a J or just a random spade in his hand.

I told you dumb azz
