        So been playing 9 handed in the 1/2 tables with 200 buy in, managed to get in a couple double ups to get the stack to nearly 1000. Start under the gun with AJs so raise it up then call re-raise to see flop. Hit a flush draw so C-Bet out 50 (just over half the pot) then call the raise to see turn. Miss the flush so check to see an all in. Now this guy been pretty reckless but all I have if I miss is a busted draw. I call and miss. Smart move or could I have folded there?

            Hi Trenton365,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            Preflop I think with the small bet size from V7 we can easily call and play multiway with a suited Ace. If the raise was big I think we can fold AJ. I also don't think re-raising can be in our favor because I don't want to get all in with AJ. So okay for the call.

            OTF you said that you hit a flush draw so Cbet. Here we are not the preflop raiser anymore. V7 took the lead from us when they 3bet us preflop, so we cannot say this is a cbet. What you have done is lead into the pot or what is also known as a donk bet. I don't mind that line with the NFD and an overcard. But an alternative could also be to check to the PFR and come over the top. As played, we should be folding to the turn all in bet because we don't have the right odds to call. With 9 diamonds as outs we have 18% equity < and the pot odds are 30%

                          I have another hand for analysis. I feel I played it well, obviously just lost out on the end but wonder if more aggression earlier in the hand might have won it sooner?

                            3 Reasons why you might make a big bet;

                            To protect against strong draws
                            To bluff people of decent hands
                            To gain value from very strong hands
