      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.
