Default OOh, I don\'t like that turn card one bit. 200NL underboat

Early in my session, no reads therefore.

Opponents are getting a bit better at 200NL so I'm starting to mix up my lines (not all donks anymore, toto)

I obviously need to know whether someone's got that ace since my slowplay on the flop got f'd up by the turn, and the flat-call from MP is just enough to make me believe he's got an ace.

After the hand, UTG claims he "made his flush for once"... so... I'm a bit sketchy here.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (6 max, 6 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

UTG ($231.25)
MP ($159.65)
CO ($316.48)
Button ($186.47)
Hero ($216.65)
BB ($185)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 6[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. Hero posts a blind of $1.
UTG calls $2, MP calls $2, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Button calls $2, Hero (poster) completes, BB checks.

Flop: ($10) 5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
Hero checks, BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets $5</font>, MP calls $5, Button folds, Hero calls $5, BB folds.

Turn: ($25) A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets $8</font>, MP calls $8, Hero folds.

River: ($41) 4[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">UTG bets $50</font>, MP folds.

Final Pot: $91

you might get another 5 to fold as well, and cant really call any significant bet on the river. i raise flop, but if you dont, its raise or fold on the turn. calling is baad.

Note my OP in that I feel like I need to mix up my lines a bit in order to not state my hand and get zero value out of a big flop. I'm not advocating slowplay as a regular line, but it has its place against better players. This was unfortunately one of those times where I picked wrong.

The turn card coming down with me OOP means I've either got to lead and fold, or check and call if i'm going to stick around. If I check-raise the turn, what's my river line? Bad spot to be in. I thought my reverse implied given the action was enough to justify the fold... but I'm not happy about it.

bad spot to "mix it up" and not because of that turn.

Yea, could have picked a better spot to play a flop like that. I think i prefer leading the flop looking back -- checkraise would give it away and leading looks less like I have a 5 than check/calling.

This isn't a great time to be tricky. Diamonds will still call here and a lot of the time an Ace will, as well. If you are so concerned about a check-raise being too obvious, just lead.

It's fine. You're behind to the Ace a majority of the time. Even if they both had Diamonds or some other crap like Kings, the fold is +EV, IMO.
