re: Poker & 0.05/0.10 NLHE Full Ring: Did I mishandle my nut flush draw on the flop?
By the nuts I mean he came in with something suited so he's already holding the flush per the flop. I'm just gonna put him on J-10, Q-10, K-10, or some mid suited connector potentially and if he is halfway considering my hand in comparison to his own he probably put me on a draw and figured I missed once the river came.
My bet on the turn, albeit I now fully see it was pretty poor, was my way of trying to further determine if he had a stronger hand than me. More common than not I see 10NL players commonly call a c-bet on the flop but fold it up once they miss on the turn. If they continue to call on the turn they either have their hand already, or they are riding their single pair to the death. It's hard to say as every villain is different.
Perhaps my thoughts on this are a bit off and I would love for anyone to shed some light on the theory. I'm coming to the conclusion from replaying the hand and this discussion that I basically threw money away on the turn. I understand that my pot-sized bet on the turn was way out of my pot odds
which leads me to believe that checking the turn and following through with his bet would have been the best option for me. If he made a bet within my pot odds I could call, otherwise it's an easy fold on the turn and I avoid losing more money.
Thank you both for your insight. Discussions on this forum seem to be a great way to improve.
