      I bet again on the turn to protect against a 1 card flush draw and to take the free card on the river but unfortunately he bets , although its a small bet and i get good odds. However he is a fish more on the passive side. Is it an insta-call and up to how much could i call there?

      First i have to say that my poker english isnt the best. But it will hopefully improve :)

      I probably would have made the same mistake to call. But it is a very scary board. Dont think he bluf on that board cause he knows he gets call from many hands. He had straight or flush right? You dont have to insta call. Make the good fold instead.

      If he had flush, he would check/raise you on the flop/turn. One possible hand that I could think of is K :spade: J. Only thing you could beat here is probably Q :spade: x. He bet really small, I guess it depends on your reads, I would probably call it also.

      I call the smalish bet - you don't have to win the pot very often...
