$1721 - Flopped Straight Flush Gets Paid

I took another shot at 2/4 NL, and after an initial setback worked my way up about $40 during a 2-table session. Then I lost a $340 pot on the river to a 3 outer (all-in on turn). This sent me packing back to 1/2 NL. I don't think my luck has been there at 2/4 NL so far. The above hand, a hand where I lost $340 to a draw (coinflip) a few days ago, and some of the other hands I have posted, have all been pretty big losing pots, where a little luck could have gone a long way. I have not been on the winning side of to many big ones, yet am still hovering less than 1 buy-in down. So back at 1/2 NL, and I get the ultimate BB special in a 3-way limped pot.

in summary:

this guy flops two pair, rivers a boat and somehow you manage to find a way not to get all his chips?

Why in the world would you make a 30% pot raise after he makes it $84 on the river.


You don't even have the full pot behind and he is obviously in love with his hand. Get it all in man!

Weak tight works best when you flop the nuts.

hey Fuel double check your hand charts. Blinders flopped the bottom end of the straight flush. he woulda been dominated by 9-T sOOOted.
