Poker Winning Hands

Flopping Top Pair, Top Kicker… BUT the Flush Gets There!

I flop top pair, top kicker but then the turn brings three to a flush. Do you continue value betting when checked to or do you usually try to see a cheap showdown?

In many cases, checking back and looking to bluff catch rivers is great when the flush comes in. The key to this hand is understanding that when the Ah and Jh are on the board, the SB range has very few flushes! When the opponent has very few flushes we can keep betting for value.

How many times do you look to get 3-streets of value in spots like this? Do you like the way I played this hand or would you have played it differently?
