      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 7, 7.
      MP2 raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.47) 5, 7, 6 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.75, MP2 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.97) 2 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.97) 8 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.97.

      I made a bad play probably not betting the turn/river. However, I was thinking that if he was slow playing his flush, he probably would have checked one more street and the fact that i played wrongly on the turn, i think i can only check on the river. =x

      Bet 2/3 pot size on turn, fold to a raise. Check river, fold to a big bet.

      Hello fl4m3r,

      I'd raise even bigger on flop, ~$1. Otherwise you can consider Betting the turn as well but if you somewhat are scared to face a raise then likely Checking back is also fine and extract value on river if you hit your FH. :) He will still pay a lot to us with flush there when we even do hit our FH but when we get raised on turn then we have likely to fold if we don't get proper odds. Otherwise the river is very thin value, therefore I don't mind Checking behind.

      Best regards.
