      As soon as the Ace of clubs falls I'm confident he dosent have a flush. I still thought check call was best to encourge Bluffs.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Preflop: I'd even raise bigger here, ~$0,32.

      As played
      Flop: You could even bet bigger here, ~$0,50 or something similar.
      Turn: Could you tell us why are you confident that he doesn't have the flush? Do you have any earlier reads that he tried to bluff out out of the pot or what? Of course with reads it's possible to Call and reevaluate river. And sometimes even our flush might be good here.
      River: And this Call I don't like either, without any reads or knowing that he might be tilting I am not going to Call. If you take a look into his AF, then it also could easily say us that he ain't taking such a line very often, more often with made hands. Therefore I am not going to Call such a overshove. If you have some further reads on him then mention that also, why you were so sure, without them, I'd rather prefer to fold.

      Best regards.

      Proberly should of mentined but I think he was tilting befor and after this hand and he semed to play realy aggresivly agaisnt me IP. I just had a Gut instinct that I was ahead. He either had the nuts or nothing, and I was glad to see he had nothing.

      Yeah, then I'd agree with your line, but still I guess you get my point that is very risky move. I'd rather usually try to abuse him with very good hands. But with your reads, it's totally doable, as you did, good Call! Good luck on the tables!
