I had Jd9d in my hand and raised on the CU 3 x the BB pre flop. On the flop I hit a flush - 2d, 8d and 10d. I then carried on raising as I had the flush and then the straight flush draw on top. However I was reraised a number of times. The turn I forget, but the river was the 2c. After a he raises on the river I drew the other guy all in and he ends up with full house 8 over 2s.

Up until the 2 I had him beat but I missed the full house draw. Was this, despite loosing, the correct way to play this hand or should I have been more conservative? I guess I feel I played it correctly up until the river, but then focused on my flush rather than the possible draw on the table. But by the time I had got to the river I had invested about half my stack.

Hi Takamino!

It depends on the stack sizes, the pot size and how much was bet. Without this information, I can't say whether or not it was the correct play. If you have this info, we'd be glad to help.

Good luck at the tables.
