Thoughts on this hand, please.
Blinds 600/1200/200? ante - Have about 33k, 7 handed, 28 left and cash at 24.
I'm in BB.
UTG +1 (probably the best player at the table and by far biggest stack)- min raises.
Button holding about 52k calls.
I get K ♥ Q ♥ and call.
Flop comes A ♥ Q ♠ A ♣ . I bet 6k to try to flush out an ace or straight draw. UTG +1 folds, Button calls. So the bet accomplishes what I was looking for: I cleared out the big stack and put the Button on the A or draw.
Turn is 7 ♥ . I check, Button also checks.
Now here comes the fun card - 5 ♥ - giving me the nut flush. I'm feeling pretty good at this point because there's no straight out there and with the min raise just called I'm putting him a on weak ace. With about 25k left, I bet 12k. Button raises me all-in and with 12k back I call.
He shows A ♠ Q ♦ for the flopped full house and I'm off to the showers.
Could I have saved myself there somehow?
