Not nice.

The problem here is you only need the flush to save you if he's holding AA/KK, otherwise you're probably ahead anyway. But if he's holding one of these hands with the diamond you're in big trouble. He may also be holding the Ad or Kd, which will give him the pot if the diamond comes out.

TT is possible also, and would be a good hand to pull a squeeze in this situation, so we can't discount that.

You haven't really got enough chips to force him to fold if you raise, so you'll be playing for your stack with this hand if you choose to call or raise.

I'd be annoyed, but i'd probably fold.

for the answe to richyl2008, this was the 3rd hand of the game, so i didnt know too much.

I ended up folding and it did annoy me. I thought about re-raising pre-flop, but it seemed that with someone calling my raise, then he re-raised i thought i might be against KK, AA

So you're MP1 with $29.45? (I hate this hand converter)

I don't play this limit, but here's my two cents...
Rockets_bro calling your raise doesn't mean much.
The SB's raise shows strength, but not necessarily A/A or K/K. Maybe A/Q+ or T/T+. So in that range, you're ahead most of the time.

An $11 bet into a $19 pot seems weak normally, but I he could be trying to pot commit you by betting half of your remaining stack. You either fold here or shove. I don't think there's much fold equity if you shove, as he probably has a bigger flush draw, but a call commits you so you might as well take what you can get.

The flop is not likely to have connected to either of you, so he could very easily be making a continuation bet to chase you off a A/K type hand. But if he has a non J/J over pair, you are toast.

With no information on the SB I'd make my read based on his chip stack and his position. He's apparently up $16 from what I assume was a $50 buy-in, and he acted strong from poor position when a couple people have already expressed interest in the pot. If he's smart that means you're beat.

I say shove. I think you're going to win a little less than half the time, but there's enough money already in the pot to make the play profitable in the long run.

easy shove. if you can't go broke on this flop vs this guy, you shouldn't have even played the hand preflop. if you call preflop and then fold on that flop, you made a mistake. and it probably wasnt preflop unless he's very tight and predictable and virtually only 3betting with AA/KK

without the Qd you can let it go, but the Qd increases your equity against his range significantly
