re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: straight flush and an empty bank
Wow what a flop! You live for beautiful flops like that! To be honest, I think you can play this pot different ways. It just depends on the feel for your table and the other players in the hand. Checking in hopes of your opponents making hand can work, but the way you played it can work as well. I find that more often then not, playing it aggressively like you did is a more +EV move than just checking hoping for someone to hit something on later streets.
