      Villain is virtually unknown. I didn't put him on a flush since he called on the flop. Didn't think he'd draw...though I'd only put in a half pot sized bet so as not to scare him off now that I think about it.

      Hello Edukator99,

      Preflop: I'd rather even fold such hand here, since we will be playing against him OOP, also our hand could easily be dominated.

      As played
      Flop: Betting here and protecting against any kind of draw is fine. But I might bet a bit bigger, ~$0.10.
      Turn: As the flush came and we still planning to continue then likely going for 2nd barrel is fine and reevaluate river. Otherwise if you might even think about just Check/Folding, since he wont really bet with a lot worse hands here.

      As played if turn was Bet
      River: Definitely Check/Fold, we have shown 2 streets of strength and then he decides to bet on such board into us that big, I'd often see him having a lot better hand here.

      Best regards.
