.01/.02, turned the nut flush
Well I wanted to play 3 hours but only did about an hour and a half due to bad internet scaring the crap out of me when I flopped trip queens in a three bet pot. My timer was at three seconds when I reconnected and I quickly got a bet in and won about a ten dollar pot at a .01/.02 game.
On the plus side my game today has experienced less variance than the other day of playing because I followed ChuckTs advice of starting hands more closely and didn't get involved in so many bad hands... or I was much more willing to lay down those hands if I didn't hit.
BB: $2.81 (140.5 bb)
CO: $1.62 (81 bb)
BTN: $10.11 (505.5 bb)
Hero (SB): $5.72 (286 bb)
The table in general is full of a lot of players that like to see every flop cheap. In this case I didn't mind because if I do hit flush here I'm going to want to play a multi way pot.

With four players in and the possibility of a big pot I wanted to give myself good odds
to draw and sure enough I got away with it.

Woo hit my flush and the nut flush at that. I had very few check raises up to this point and thought it might not be a bad time against a fairly aggressive player trying to show that maybe I was afraid of the spade that came down and giving him a chance to bluff at it. Should I have gone for more than just 2x his raise though?

The board just paired and meaning I no longer have the best possible hand. Even though I'm still fairly positive I have the best hand. This paired board brings me to the main question about this hand, Do you reraise his reraise on the river or just call like I did? Looking back I feel I should of reraised because the only hand that he probably could be playing on is AT since every other hand that has me beat probably would of raised me more on the flop. I just want your opinions on it.
$2.16 pot ($0.10 rake)
