      9 players

      Stack sizes:

      UTG+1: $7.15

      Button: $18.75
      SB: $35.10
      Utahmar: $4.65

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Utahmar is BB with 5 2
      UTG calls $0.25 (pot was $0.35), UTG+1 calls $0.25 (pot was $0.6), 4 folds, Button calls $0.25 (pot was $0.85), SB calls $0.15 (pot was $1.1), Utahmar checks.

      Flop: 3 5 7 ($1.25, 5 players)
      SB checks, Utahmar checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, Button checks.

      Turn: T ($1.25, 5 players)
      SB checks, Utahmar checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, Button checks.

      River: 6 ($1.25, 5 players)

      I think the bet on the river wasnt bad, i had some showdown value, can fold to reraise. I might call it block bet ?

      Very nice hand. You played that well and explained it correctly what the right think would be to do, against a reraise. :)

      This mentality is way way way wrong , you play with 20 BB , you hold a 2 card flush on an unpaired board where straights are possible and you are thinking of playing bet/fold and that your hand only has some showdown value? I would 4bet push to a raise without any second thoughts.

      I'm with undercover82 on this one. If he raises, he may just put you on any pair/two pair and hold some kind of weird hand like a4s. With a short stack, you can't simply fold to a raise, and any over-flush is a cooler. Also, he may be prone to bet a flushdraw on the turn, as any limped hand from utg+1 may well include higher suited cards, and he may want to isolate/pot build.

      Without any special reads, I would probably push to a reraise.

      Agree with previous speakers. I think folding to a reraise here is quite passive. I would maybe even consider beting turn if I were a liitle bit later, since we have some outs.
