4NL cash game were I get Ts Ad in the CO and raise 3bb.
Only the BB calls (his first hand as he just joined the table).
I C-bet the flop and check the river as there are 3 to a flush => is this correct?
When the river comes I make my T high flush and value bet.
I get raised…
Do I call or not?

The outcome will be posted later.

I would check flop because I don’t expect that many folds on 569 2-tone flop with gutter straight draws and flush draws. As played, check back the river for showdown value. Your ten-high flush is asking to get called by a smaller flush, which there aren’t that many (2s, 3s, 4s, 7s), but a lot of better flushes. Most of the smaller spades are folding too. to any river bet.

As played, fold to the raise.

Is it me or are the 4nl players in your player pool complete spazzes? If they are, keep playing there. 🙂

In regards to how you should play this hand, I’ll refer to my latest response in the post link below because your thought process should be the same:

Hi Alton,

No they are not…:-)
Some are, some are not; but as there is a lot of coming and going of players at the tables it is not always easy.
That is why I wrote about it in my blog. I find it really difficult to decide if I should call or not.
Sometimes TPTK is enough, sometimes even a full house is not sufficient.

But thank you for your advice, I really appreciate it.
This will help me for sure when I reach the higher levels.
