Started 200NL

I've been taking my 2nd shot at 200NL for the past few days now (my first shot was about 2 months ago. I've done a few smaller shots that don't really count). I am mixing in 2 tables of 200NL along with 4 tables of 100NL.

Although I have only played for 3-4 days, I can happily say the amount of fish there are the same. I also assume that the regs are a bit better though.

I was doing quite well today, but then was absolutely coolered. There was a fish playing on 2, 200NL tables and I quickly joined both. He was playing 60/14 and in tons of pots. I had a run of good cards in just my first round and isolated him 2x back to back and he folded both times. Then i got AQ, a trouble hand, if you have NO RESPECT. You second guess yourself if it's because they have no respect for you or if they really do have a hand.

Full Tilt Poker, $1/$2 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players

Hero (MP): $137
ripkeniv (CO): $277.60
Rangerek (BTN): $488.25
boozer6262 (SB): $199.80
longtruong521 (BB): $100.70
RandomRR (UTG): $217

Pre-Flop: dealt to Hero (MP)

RandomRR folds, Hero raises to $7, 2 folds, boozer6262 calls $6, longtruong521 calls $5

Flop: ($21) (3 Players)

boozer6262 checks, longtruong521 checks, Hero checks

I have the nut flush draw, so I decide to check. If I had the king or queen flush draw I could see some merit in semi bluffing. Couple the fact that I have the ace flush draw + I will have no fold equity b/c this is my third raise in less than 5 hands, I would get no one to fold.

Turn: ($21) (3 Players)

boozer6262 checks, longtruong521 checks, Hero checks

River: ($21) (3 Players)

boozer6262 checks, longtruong521 bets $21, Hero raises to $130 and is All-In, boozer6262 folds, longtruong521 calls $72.70 and is All-In

This guy was so fishy that I was sure a king flush would call me and quite possibly a jack flush.

Results: $208.40 Pot ($3 Rake)
Hero showed (a flush, Ace high) and LOST (-$100.70 NET)
longtruong521 showed (a straight flush, Eight high) and WON $205.40 (+$104.70 NET)
