This strategy video focuses on playing flushes (and flush draws) in Texas Hold'em cash games. SplitSuit looks at 8 different hand histories from FR NLHE where Hero either flops a flush or a flush draw. There are:
- 5 hands of flopped flushes.
- 3 hands of flopped flush draws.
The aim is to cover a bunch of different situations involving flushes, and to help you to play more optimally the next time you're playing with a flush or a flush draw.
Although the strategy in this video centres around playing flushes, SplitSuit analyses these hand histories like he does in other HH review videos (watch HH review 1) – covering all aspects of the hand. As a result, other big topics discussed in this video include bet sizing, pot geometry and starting hand selection.
