My thoughts exactly. Plus most good players would have raised after the flop, showing 2 suits to go along with the pocket Ax of the matching suit, and wouldn't of just checked
A couple of things to consider.......
1) I was in first position, I couldnt raise...... only bet or check. When 6 people see the flop, and there is a king out there a bet is dangerous as someone may easily raise pot and I will then be forced to fold my nut draw.
2)A check raise on the flop is also very dangerous in NL as you reopen the betting to the original raiser, and perhaps even someone who smooth called and hoped to pop it on the turn with a flopped set or 2 pair.... I think a c/r on the flop would be really bad, unless I c/r all in...... but I dont like playing for luck, so I wouldnt chance 800 on the flop with just a draw.
3) It is true that MOST of the time you cant fold the second nut flush, but to play well you have to be able to read hands. What could I possibly have when
**I bet the turn when the flush card came
**got raised $100 when a flush card came
** saw a player who was not pot commited by any means call $160 cold
** I see all this and reraise $538
If I am the other player, to call I must figure that since the K and J of hearts is out there, and I *think
* I have Q-T of hearts that not only does he not have the suited ace of hearts....... but is trying to bluff out TWO
players, one of whom is nearly all in, with nothing better than a 9 high flush!!
Would you all still really call a $500+ reraise with a Q high flush???
If so lets play
