Why obviously you raise that flop? You don't have to raise a FD- and probably shouldn't on a paired board.. I know it's a freeroll, so you're getting called a LOT by worse hands in these places, still though - generally speaking in cash/MTT don't over play your FD on a paired board, because you're asking for trouble and if you hit a FH on a paired board with flush possibilities then quite often the thing to do is to allow your opponent to hit their flush to get full value.

Yea, I guess I got too cocky with the A high on that one...what stings the most is that he had my number from the beginning...only thing that could have beaten him was pocket 4's, and he knew the likelihood of that was probably under 5%.../sigh...well, live and learn i suppose. Thanks for the advice Jess, I'll definitely remember that next time. Big Smile

Out of curiousity were you in position or OOP ?

If you have position on your opponent I'd probably use "pot-control" meaning slow down on turn river using a check/call type strategy rather than raise/re-raise.

On the flop- possibly you're better off using a check/raise strategy- meaning take the free card if you can, but if they bet the flop - you raise it, that way you see where you are right away, and fold to a shove/re-raise/

At any rate, always be careful on paired boards with flushes.

Still - very unlucky though - in a freeroll I'd get all my chips in 100% of the time on the river..

dont like the raise on flop and turn, maybe you should be a bit less aggressive especially as the board is paired but hav to admit its hard to fold at river in a freeroll unless u have good player read. better luck next time
