Party $3/6 HE, full table. I’m dealt 9s8s in late position. Three limpers ahead of me, I limp, another limper, then there’s a raise. Small blind calls, big blind folds, all limpers call. (Seven players!)
Flop: 9h 3d 5d
Checked to me, I bet to see where I am. I get three callers.
There’s a bet and a call. I’ve been working on not fearing flushes all the time (I think I fold too often when the flush card comes) so I decide to call. Our friend the pre-flop raiser raises. The two in front of me call, but I decide to let the hand go. I had thought he might have AK-AJ because he didn’t raise the flop, but now the raise on the turn scared me. Even so I’m reluctant because the pot is large and I haven’t seen anything from the other two players that indicates a strong hand.
The preflop raiser bets and gets called by one other player. They turn up the cards and the raiser shows AQo, no flush. The caller shows pocket sixes for the win.
Does anyone call the turn raise? Does anyone fold to the first bet on the turn? This hand feels full of mistakes to me.
