Hi, I think you play well with KK, but the poker cards doesn’t favors you because the river show the flush for the villain, sometimes this will happen, if you feel frustrated take a break and come back later, poker give you the revenge.
Good game.

I dont really like UTG+1 flop raise as the hand blocks alot of continues and will generally be behind when called. Seems like it is too good to turn into a semi bluff

The hand was played fine. Villain overplayed his hand a bit OTF but OTT we are definitely jamming.

I don't think so man.

Pre-flop :
I think the $18 call from UTG+1 was too loose even if his hand was suited.

Flop :
UTG+1 played right. Top pair + 2nd nuts flush draw, he had to raise.
But SB played too passively. Did not protect his hand. Why did he just call ?

Turn :
Huge mistake again by SB, how does he check that turn ? He should've shoved 1st to put max pressure on his opponent, which he ended up doing anyway but only when UTG was already too committed to fold !

SB let UTG+1 catch. He probably wanted to trap, but trapping with a flush draw on flop is always a dangerous business. Of course the above is just my own opinion !

SB played this fine. You cant play that face up by 3betting flop or donking turn with the nuts. When villain is bluffing you want them to continue to do so
