Hi Stedds,

I think raising in late position (here the hijack) is good in the prem league. People are playing super tight as you mention.

Raising only from the button is a little see-through in the prem league and you may get some resistance so hijack and cutoff are good seats to steal from. Your hand has good potential to flop some equity.

C-Bet is good. Bet when the flush comes in. Once the guy reraises us on the turn I'd be a little worried about bigger flushes to be honest. We'd need to make our decision if we are going with the hand or not, we can't just call and face another bet on the river especially is another diamond came.

Well played
Andy




Quad Bracelet Winner
