I check raised him on turn to protect my weak flush since I didn't want to give him an almost free card for his Kc or Qc. I only left 1$ behind into a 2.50$ pot and I'm not sure if I did the right thing. What other line can I take in this spot? other then fold 67s preflop

Hi dysi,

Yeah, I don't really like calling so much preflop oop but it's not bad given there's another caller, we're 100bb's deep, and both opponents cover.

The thing I would do different is bet the turn... you check-raised because you didn't want to give a big club an almost free card, but by checking you actually almost gave them a totally free card. And obviously a 4th club is a disaster for you, either beating you or killing all action when it doesn't. Just lead out to make sure you get some value and don't let hands like AQ check behind or KcKs take a free card to beat you. I doubt these hands would barrel the turn after getting called in both spots on the flop in a 3b pot on this board texture.

Other than that, as played I definitely agree with raising, and would have raised it a bit more myself.
