How to prepare/defend?

He made the right call on the flop, given what he had.

Should I have played more defensively?

Should I be better prepared for the worst?

Should I have checked the flop and waited to see what came on the turn, just in case it was a danger card? Risk winning less to risk losing less?
(I anticipate the argument that I should have slowed down when my opponent called the flop because he might already have the flush; let me say that once again I knew he didn't, that he only had one spade. I fired again on the turn because I hadn't anticipated the additional straight draw. Oh, and don't bother asking how I knew he only had one spade 'cause I've answered similar questions a zillion times before and no one ever believes that I 'just knew'. )

  1. I think you over-think nick/dime hands/situations/players. And you didn't take away his odds with the Pot bet on the Flop.
