Hi Mike,

Preflop is fine.

I like the flop bet. I also like the turn action. I think we would tend to get check/raised on the flop by AQ or 22, and seems a pretty crazy loose peel with KT, so I'm happy to go with this strong a made hand + a draw to the nuts.

I'd bet a bit bigger OTF but otherwise standard.

Some of the stuff the villain might (?) have been thinking about, might have been like:

- T8s pre-flop call in the sb - maybe this was because there were already 3 in the pot, and 2 were deep-stacked like him?

- post-flop call - assumed his flush draw was good, so he was getting a good price to call, especially if the big stacks came along?

- here, I dunno - your turn bet looks like you've got something strong, although he was probably able to rule out AA and QQ. He's really only representing KT or TT, which is such a narrow range ... think it would have been wrong to fold AQ or AJ, and then you had the nut flush draw to boot hehe. But once you 3-bet, if he thought both his draws were good, then he must have thought he was getting the right price to call?


Not sure ... just guesses I guess

I don't mind his preflop call with all the players in the pot, its his turn raise does he actually think im ever bluffing here? I would of found a fold with AK and no clubs, i was just wondering if i should be raising any turns as a semi bluff sometimes myself.
