    Yay royal, shouldn't this be in wins and fails though?

    Win - Royal flush
    Fail - every street except river

    I'm not that familiar with the forum yet. Maybe an Admin could move it?

    Thank you for pointing it out to me

    Moved to Wins and Fails for you

    As Lucothefish said, you might want to look at your play on each street. You complete the small blind with T5o - you're going to be raised and forced to fold a lot, or flop awkward hands to play like 2nd pair with a rubbish kicker out of position where you'll rarely win a big pot but could end up losing one.

    I don't mind the flop bet, you've got the 2nd nut flush draw and a gutshot plus he'll fold a lot on that board. The turn bet doesn't achieve anything, either bet bigger (like 1/2 pot) or just check and re-evaluate. River bet seems fine though

    It's not my experience that the players in these low BI tours raise their BB in a try to protect it that often. It really takes a good hand for most to do so. But you are right ofcourse

    FLOP: I bet, as I know that if he hasn't hit anything on that flop, and doesn't have a heart, he'll fold.

    TURN: I continue to bet to make him believe I have something. I could have checked as you say, but he could then start betting and move me out of the pot, in a believe that I'm not that strong because of my check.

    RIVER: I simply hope he has a heart, and believes I'm bluffing

    That was my way to look at the hand, but you probably know better. But that's the beauty of poker...hands can be played in so many ways, mostly wrong ways

    I'm here to learn, so thank you for input

    May I ask, am I only allow to make 5 posts per day? How come?
