I think calling is not good preflop - you have to flop extremely well to continue out of position against a raise from a relative short stack. Plus on the rare occasion you do flop a monster, you can't even win that much. Therefore you haven't really got the implied odds to make this call, 3Betting might only be a good play if villain was deeper stacked so folding is by far the best play.

As played - I would check/call the flop and check/fold the turn and river, as you played it.

Hi sapines1001!

Any info on the opps? tight/loose, etc.. when posting hands for analysis, this type of information helps us to be able to provide better answers for you. Please try to provide it when posting hands.

With 68s from the SB, I get a standard open from MP. I'm going to fold this preflop. I'm out of position and my hand is not strong enough to raise with. The other factor here is that even if I did have a hand to raise with, due to the opp's stack size, I better be ready to play for their entire stack as a standard raise will pot-commit them. 68s is not strong enough to play for stacks, so I'm mucking.
----------
As played, when I flop a flush draw, I'm going to check to the preflop raiser and hope to see a free turn card (or call a bet that would be +EV to draw to).

The turn is a blank and I'm going to check again and hope for a free river. If I bet the turn, I need to bet at least 1/2 pot, if not 2/3 pot due to the board texture. If I'm going to bet, I need to size the bet like I have the made hand (not a draw). Here again, I run into a problem with a bet. If I bet 2/3 pot (1150), this is very close to pot-committing the opp and if the bet makes them pot-committed, then I need to be ready to play for stacks... which with only a flush draw (I'm discounting the straight as it's too easy for the opp to have a larger straight if I hit) I'm not ready to do. With this being the case, I'm checking.

The river gives me a pair, but it completes many of the draws. Since my hand does have showdown value, I'm going to check and hope to see a free showdown. If the opp bets, then I need to muck.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Due to their stack size, I'm not calling nor raising from any position. The stacks are not deep enough.
