      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $12.28
      BB:
      $17.50
      MP3:
      $19.82
      CO (Hero):
      $12.02
      BU:
      $10.15


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 6, A.
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BU folds, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.9) 7, Q, 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB folds, BB calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.9) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.30, BB calls $1.30.

      River: ($4.5) K (2 players)
      BB bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $10.5.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, ace high(6 A).
      BB shows a flush, king high(J Q).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(6 A).

      This guy is playing 50/33 high agro factor on all streets, bluffs a lot, loves to call.
      So my question is: What is the best riverplay? obviously im not folding, but should I shove for value(Kx, smaller flush) or is this too marginal?

      I think this is pretty well played given that he calls pre and just calls flop and turn and bet river he could easy have a full house there and if u jam he could put u on a full house aswell and fold.

      Hello matusko,

      Flop: I guess I am even betting a bit bigger here ~$0,60.
      Turn: And as well betting it bigger here at least $1,60 for value.
      River: And it's kinda close, sometimes he could have a FH here as well, often times such a donk on river after our 2times barreling is very strong hand. Therefore I guess more often I am inclined to call there as well and go for passive play. Since he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse, while FH is possible and as well flush is possible unless he has some higher flush or FH of course.

      Although those players might just raise it right on flop with sets to protect from any kind of draws but of course never know them. Some even like to play passively with their nuts while they bluff a lot with missed hands.

      Best regards.
