I had a few bucks left on PS so thought I'd give cash a go, and have so far turned about $8 into $19 in the last two days by 4 tabling 2NL.
In this spot, I couldn't see what I was beating here. Would he check back the flop if he hit his Ace after raising pre? The only thing he would, possibly, is 2 pair. But then when I bet out the turn, he would surely raise 2 pair here if he was getting trappy and the turn brings the flush draw. If I'm wrong and he had 2 pair, then the A brought his boat so I'm beat, but the flat call on the turn and the subsequent RR on the river suggests a flush. I folded, because, apparently, I'm an idiot. I just can't see why someone would min bet raise here, unless they had it. It doesn't look like a bluff because he's giving me such good odds so he must want me to call.
