Limps around to hero in mid position with 44s. Hero limps and 3 limpers join behind.
flop = 346, 2 diamonds
sb opens for 10 folds to hero who makes it 28 total.
1 caller behind and everyone else including sb folds.
turn is Jd.
hero checks and villain shovs for heros remaining ~£100.
Thinking here is when hero checks turn after limping pre and raising sb a flush is somewhat never in heros range. Villain is def capable of reading heros effectively face up hand.
Dont flushes bet less for value and sr8s or bigger sets re raise the flop because of all the players behind and small blind???
just seems nut flush draws are the only flush draws that are calling the flop with this villain and are not shoving when checkd to on turn.
Really? People call here with any flush draw to a small raise like that. You are wildly over-estimating the discipline of live poker players. They will probably always call to a larger raise, so the flop raise should be to 40 GBP min.
Everything is consistent with a small/medium flush, and they would make up around 70% of his range here IMO. Add in the bigger sets and straights and we are not getting the right price. After the strength hero has shown on the flop, it's a horrible spot to bluff because people very rarely raise flop / fold turn. If villain can read hero's hand for a set, then he is going to jam for value. If he regularly tries to bluff people of sets it would explain why he's down 200.
