re: Poker & going all in with a flush draw
Well an allin raise with a flush draw going can be good or bad. The main advantage of this move in a cash game would be that people would not expect the flush. If your betting for a flush draw, and it hits, you can go check reraise or whatever you want to do, cause most likely you have the game won already, and If your not called well you won the money right there, no risk. But this works only when you raise a certain amount, cause If you go allin, you don't have that margine after, and Id prefer the margine cause then you can fold if you dont catch, and most likely youll get some chips, who knows maybe even more from more players calling. Thats how you should play the flush in a cash game. But in a tourny the circumstances are different cause the blinds are going up and you need to be a bit more aggressive so I wouldn't say that the guy did a bad play cause I don't know the circumstances exactly.
