      Trying with c-bet is ok, but when he calls you he tells you he has sth.
      A on the turn looks good card to 2nd barrel but when he calls even that you must know that he's not on a flush draw.
      River is somewhat tricky...if you put him on some pair your Q is ok, but that's all you can beat. The flush got there, K high is beating you,...He played his line pretty strong and his river bet is really value looking.

      I would c-bet flop, c/f turn.
      Especially against unknown it's unnecessary to lose your money in such bad positions.

      Hello YourDoom,

      The ace is pretty good card for a 2nd barrel but it doesn't mean that you always have to 2nd barrel there. I often prefer to take such lines against known opponents but of course your line is fine. But I would likely just Check/Fold river, since I don't know the opponent either flush even beats us and he could even easily have K high there. Against some specific opponents that line could be even considerable.

      Best regards.
