Hi there,


Fairly new player to the table this was his 2nd hand, he limped an A4s in middle position before. his name is bluff harry, I usually reckon that people with a name like MaDBluFfEr etc. are just tight players.
Anyway, I expected either a shove or fold on the turn, and I already knew I was calling this time, but I want to know, can this ever be a fold?

If you play 65s, then you can't really fold when you make a flush with just 3 suited cards on the board.
But why did you 3-bet pre, and at a size that gives him a good price to call with any two cards?

Hi Sjekkkk!

I'd have just called behind if I wanted to play it, but if I was going to raise, I'd have made a standard raise (400) instead of a smaller one.

I do 100% agree with Arty though, that if I play 56s preflop and hit the flush, I'm going with it to the end.
