      Unfortunately the opponent is unknown, so I just smooth call his preflop raise. Looks like perfect flop, but seems a bit draw heavy, so I don't wanna make any fancy plays here. How should I play turn? Value bet with an intention to push all the chips in the middle, or maybe be cautious of a flush? Or maybe check and give him the opportunity to represent a flush and hang himself?

      Hello Bliausmas,

      I often like to play in such spots Check/Call because we still have outs for our FH or even quads. With Bet we could put ourself into hard spot when he decides to shove and that's not what we want.

      Best regards.

      Yeah, that's what I did - check/called the turn, but it was a pot size bet, so I was commited anyway. Shoved the river of course, and surprise - the villain folded :)

      Thanks for the answer!
