      This was soooooo hard to fold, but he could have a straight or a flush, and suddenly starting to bet on the river - a bit suspicious. I can't imagine him making that bet with a worse hand than mine... What is your opinion?

      Hello feketepok,

      I'd just bet pot on flop and likely near pot on turn and then we would have much easier to Call but as played you have to fold, don't really expect him to shove there with a lot worse, more often has at least Qx type of hand which is a straigth.

      Best regards.
