      What is the right play when a river card is flush possible card, and he checks ?

      1) He must be nothing. Bet about 1/3 pot to be called. Fold to a raise.

      2) He must be nothing. Bet about 2/3 pot to not to show my hands. Fold to a raise.

      3) He may be able to check/raise. Bet about 1/5 pot. Fold to a raise.

      4) He may be able to check/raise. check/call.

      I was afraid of being raised, so my choice was 4.

      Now I think I should play like 1.

      Is it right ?

      Hello newsat,

      Flop: I'd bet bigger here, ~$0,30 or even more.

      As played if if was Bet smaller
      Turn: I'd also Bet a bit bigger, ~$0,8 for bigger protection and value from worse.
      River: Depends what kind of opponent are we against? If we are against some kind of tighter opponent, then I would likely consider just Checking behind since there is a straight possibility and also flush. :) But against some loose station I'd just fire a small bet in mind to fold to a raise.

      Best regards.
