Limping there really isn't what I'd want to do (I'd either raise or fold it).. so I'd raise to 3BB. If you did limp preflop, then you really must bet the flop.

I'd also bet something on the flop. With that many in the hand, I'd want to make anyone that could have flopped 2 pair to pay to draw at me. Also, if you bet the flop, then your opp probably won't shove the turn with their two pair (they'd be scared of the flush). That would let you see the river pair the board and could get off of the flush if the opp pushed the river.

2nd hand of a STT that hand is in the muck 90 % for me the other ten i raise preflop 4x for me not 3 becuase of the limper.

That said having mad the nuts against 2 pair you probabally would had same result if you bet or not. Not that if i bet out i'd be all in on that board i'd bet out 45% on flop.

take a breath and play another, brother
