Which point in the hand should I have folded it?


Plz tell me if I was getting right price to keep calling all streets and if not then what would have been the correct play.

In the stats pic/boom hand villian is: jacky767/Player 2

You're getting about 3-1 on the flop and about 3-1 on the turn. I would have played the hand the same. That's just me knowing I really need 4-1 but... with the nut Ace as an over card I find myself justifying it and maybe wrong.

There are some implied odds if we hit a 4th spade but will we get paid? Unlikely as it's so obvious. I don't know what to do with the stats, for me it would be read-less calls and fold river. Which sounds so bad.

And if the turn/river pairs the board we are losing to TT/99 when we hit our flush... oops.

I think you played this fine. On the flop you might easily get another caller which will gives you even better pot odds than you first anticipated.

There's also a chance that villain might be choosing to protect a hand JT so there's every possibility that your A and Q are clean outs that we might be able to get to showdown if villain gives up on the river.

Being in position helps us a lot as it's easier to extract value when we do hit our flush so calling on the turn also looks OK to me. If villain had bet significantly bigger, like 3/4 pot or more, then I'd fold.
