$2 NLHE 6-max: Flop Flush Draw, Call Down With Odds, Finishing Action?

Hosted At https://www.cardschat.com/f50/2-nlhe-6-max-flop-flush-287611/

Here’s a hand from this evening where I had a nice looking flop but the finish is something I am interested in getting some feedback on.

Winning Poker Network (Yatahay) – $0.02 NL (6 max) – Holdem – 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

BB: 104.5 BB (VPIP: 27.63, PFR: 14.47, 3Bet Preflop: 6.90, Hands: 76)
Hero (UTG): 100 BB
CO: 161.5 BB (VPIP: 53.13, PFR: 12.50, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 32)
BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 18.28, PFR: 13.45, 3Bet Preflop: 2.70, Hands: 299)
SB: 103 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 28.89, 3Bet Preflop: 7.14, Hands: 91)

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: J:spade:

Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to 7 BB, Hero calls 4 BB

Flop: (14.5 BB, 2 players) 7:spade: 6:spade: Q:spade:
BB bets 9 BB, Hero calls 9 BB

Turn: (32.5 BB, 2 players) K:club:
BB bets 15.5 BB, Hero calls 15.5 BB

River: (63.5 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
BB bets 30 BB, Hero calls 30 BB

I start with a standard raise, and call down because I think my odds are pretty good, pretty much what I would consider standard mathematical poker (correct me if I’m wrong I figure getting 3:1 odds was good on flush draws for 2 outs left. A little confused as to how to play a flush draw when the turn blanks and you are facing a bet. I mean don’t you have like a 1 in 5 chance of hitting? if anyone has a flush draw primer, I’d love to read it thanks!) anyway I call down to the river and complete my flush. I’m thinking at this point, with yet another lead out, that my opponent easily has a spade, but queens are easily in his range and I had originally thought he had one in hand with his donk bet. I also am wary of A or K of spades, which has me beat, or any other 2 spades, which I have dominated. No matter what, I have to worry about a reraise if I raise, as 3 streets of betting tells me he’s pretty confidant, and it wasn’t going on much at the table.


Spoiler alert!

BB shows A:heart: Q:heart: (One Pair, Queens)
(Pre 75%, Flop 63%, Turn 73%)
Hero shows A:diamond: J:spade: (Flush, Queen High)
(Pre 25%, Flop 37%, Turn 27%)
Hero wins 117.5 BB

2 BB was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.

My Thoughts
