      Hello foolboydesire,

      Preflop: I guess just completing in such a multiway pot should be totally fine.
      Flop: As played I guess you can consider betting here and starting to build up the pot and as you get raised you still can consider Calling and hoping to hit for your nut-flush.
      Turn: Yeah, rather Check it as you did.
      River: If we take a look at the BB W$SD then it's damn high but I still don't understand why he is like Checking behind on turn with FH. He could have there a flushdraw as well. And I guess I'd bet like $0,40 on river but as played it's very close, since he is doing such a big raise it's damn close and as well very ugly. He may of course do that with a lot weaker flushes but he may as well have there a FH which easily beats us.

      And for example we put him on this range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 90,000% 90,000% 0,000% 10,000% 44, 22, Qh9h, JhTh, 9h8h, 76s, 64s, 76o, 64o
      Player 2: 10,000% 10,000% 0,000% 90,000% AhTh

      I guess I am more often inclined to fold it on river as long I did that small bet. I just don't see that kind of Call being in long run that profitable.

      Best regards.
