Note that the villain had no blockers for my flush or any redraws to bigger straights. It is hard to lay down the nuts on the flop but with the draws out there, don't be eager to get your money all in with a non-improveable hand. Granted it's a coin flip, but with villain's hand, you have to fold. I could be freerolling him with the same hand but with draws to the flush and bigger straights. I was trying to push him off the hand with my raise to $6.90 and was pot committed at that point.

I could have been in big trouble if he had 9s10s or a redraw to nut flush or bigger straights. In hindsight, it was a reckless play on my part. Probably better to call down or possibly even fold if you're super nitty (since my flush draw is non-nut). At these stakes, I don't tend to be super nitty ;)

So overall, I'd say both of us got too carried away with the value of our respective hands.

Would you ever bin the nut straight on the flop? I had a hand the other night where I made the nut straight (nust at the time) but the board paired diamonds. Ended up 3 way all-in and I knew at least one of my opponents had a diamond draw. Turns out both of them had it, one to the nut flush, the other to the second nuts. Anyway, one guy had an open-ender and flush draw and made a bigger straight. Looking at the equity I had 38% vs 33% vs 27%. Still, do you ever find a fold with the nuts on the flop if it's a straight?

I think you can for the reasons I mentioned above. I could've been free-rolling him with a bigger straight or flush draw. What I don't like about his hand is the he has no higher re-draw on a draw heavy board. for example, I could have 9Q and then KsAs and he would be in bad shape.

Cool. SS2 (Lyle Berman) expalins just that. He'll fold the nut straight is he thinks his opponent has the same straight but with a redraw to a bigger straight or flush. I guess this is where blockers come into play too.
