      Hello belthazorrrr,

      I'd still bet for value there since there are just so many worse hands which may easily Call you there, any pair worse PPs and so on.

      Best regards.

      I would bet the river too - many worse Qs will call, QK, QJ, Q10 would all possibly check call here. as would pps and possibly A6, A5 etc depending on the player.

      I would doubt he has the flush as he would probably lead the river and I think that in general you would lose value by checking behind here.

      You can also consider betting a bit more on the flop given that you are three ways, there is a flush draw out and you were the pre-flop aggressor.

      in the end he showed to me that he had the flush 8-7 suited
