    Hi wallbanger91! With KTs, I get basically a min-raise in front of me. Especially if the opps behind me are passive (not likely to raise), I'm more than happy to call and see a flop. However, I get a 3-bet to 150 behind me. While I'm happy to play the hand for the initial raise, I don't have a strong enough hand to call the 3-bet with and due to this, I need to muck preflop. If I did see the flop (which I would not), when I see that I flop a flush draw, I need to see if I have the correct odds to call. I have to call 220 into a pot that will be 801 (27.5%). I have 9 outs to the flush and possibly 3 more outs if a K is good. If all of my outs are clean, then I have 12 outs and each out is worth 2% equity to the turn, so my hand is worth 24%. Due to the pot equity being higher than my hand equity, I expect to LOSE chips if I call and due to this, I need to fold. I only want to call when my hand equity is higher than the pot equity, as this is where I expect to gain chips. If I saw the turn (which I would not), when the opp bets 540, with top pair and a flush draw, I'm absolutely going to call this bet and re-evaluate on the river. When the opp shoves the river, since I only have top pair with a good kicker, I'm going to muck to the shove. The key in this hand however, is to muck to the 3-bet preflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      I agree entirely with John that the main decision point here is preflop, which is what makes your life quite tricky post-flop However I think you can call the flop profitably. If we only assume that our nine flush outs are clean outs, you only need to expect to win another 421 chips on either the turn or the river once you turn your flush to give you the correct implied odds on a call, which is only a half-pot sized bet, which will likely easily be achievable. Also turning your flush is not the only way you can win this hand. Let's say the turn is the . If villain is holding something like AK/AQ with no hearts, TT, 99, or was squeezing light with something like 87s, he might just give up on the turn and let us either semi-bluff and take the pot there and then or check back and see a free river.
