This is a discussion on $1.50 NLHE STT: Nut straight and nut flush draw within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; I'm not sure I'm happy with how I played this, what would you have done differently?

I think you can lead the turn, as the board is very wet and BTN may not bet even if he has AK or sets.
This will put BTN into a tough spot when he has two pairs or sets.
But I dont mind if you just jam the flop, would get called from sets and maybe AK sometimes

With how wet the board is, I def wouldn't have minded a jam on the flop. But I think we DEF have to be lead jamming turn since as quant mentions the board is mega wet, the villain probably won't bet without a straight anyway.
Plus the turn card is substantially better for our range I think, so I wouldn't mind having a robust leading range here that doesn't just include Qx.
Obviously on river we have to jam to occasionally force folds when he misclick folds or misreads the board lol.

re: Poker & $1.50 NLHE STT: Nut straight and nut flush draw
With 3 people in the pot I would just get it in on the flop.
There are some cards that could kill our action later on plus it makes our hand look weaker shoving the flop.
Pretty bad runout for your hand, FeelsBadMan.

Limp from UTG+1, Raise from Dealer around 2,3xBB = 115 it is wrong decision when in a pot is around 170, to small bet, if he is a tight player I probably fold QKs from early position, but your odds was 1:3 so it is right decision with QKs (here we see another mistake from Dealer, he gave nice odds) On the flop you have a straight and flush draw, UTG+1 all-in Dealer: call, you have a nuts here, you can't allow get too cheap turn when Dealer waiting for diamonds, You should make all-in and give him wrong pot odds, what if he has Adiamond? with f.e 3-diamond, he have top pair, but board is dangerous, If I were you I would play all-in on the flop.
You see "Everyone loves a chop pot" You could won this hand earlier.
