The game was cash no limit Texas Holdem. Here is a hand that I had today:
Firstly, I have T♠J♠. The flop came 8♠9♠J♦. I made a minimum bet in order to put some value in the flop and also keep the players in (I figured, I am on a flush draw, so it's safe), 2 others stayed in.
The turn came 6♠, we all checked. The river was 8♥. The guy before me made a pot raise, I re-raised twice the amount, got called and he opened up with a flush King high.
So my question is, did I play right? Of course I suspected that there can be a higher flush, but I thought, flush is too good to not raise. Should I have just called?
Another question is, when I flopped high pair, would it be better to bet so much to deny the odds (keep in mind I had a draw too).
