      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 8.
      CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, SB folds, BB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.47) A, T, 2 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.25.

      Turn: ($1.22) T (3 players)

      River: ($2.72) J (2 players)
      CO bets $2.30, Hero calls $2.30.

      Final Pot: $7.32.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, ace high(9h 8h).
      CO shows a flush, ace high(Kh Qh).

      CO wins with a flush, ace high(Kh Qh).

      Is there a chance for me to fold at this spot? Villain bet pretty big here, almost pot size, so I thought either he is bluffing or he has a really big hand.

      Hello fl4m3r,

      You called preflop with such hand and when you hit you aren't even raising for value on turn, what's the point? Is there any reason you played passively? I'd just raise it on turn and likely even played for stacks. Otherwise as played on river it's kinda marginal, his line indeed looks very strong and therefore I guess just Calling should be better.

      Best regards.

      I called turn here because there is one more person behind me. If I were to raise I would only isolating myself against better hands?

      Nope, a lot of sets, 1card FDs, maybe even straights, 2pairs etc would Call you there. More often I'd protect from 1card flushdraws.
