Flopping the nuts.
This is my first post in the Hand Analysis Thread.
As you'll see in this hand I flopped the nuts. I always find it difficult to get the most amount of money out of your opponent when you've got an unbeatable hand. I was lucky because my hand was pretty well disguised and my opponent also flopped a strong hand.
I still picked up a decent pot but I felt I could have gotten more. I'd appreciate any comments on how I played this hand as well as suggestions on how I could have gotten more from it.

*** FLOP *** [8d 6d 9d] I couldn't believe it when this came out, I kept checking to make sure I had it.
MikenOH: bets $0.25 After this bet I was pretty sure he had the A♦ it turns out he did flop a flush but not A high.
138Misfit: calls $0.25 What this HH doesn't show is that I waited along time to call, I wanted him to think I was on a draw.
*** TURN *** [8d 6d 9d] 9♣
MikenOH: bets $0.50
138Misfit: calls $0.50 Again, I waited a bit before calling.
