      Hello SneakyhanD,

      Preflop: I guess I am still doing it 4xBB, unless I see the opponent be a very loose player.
      Postflop: Usually the turn bet is for free showdown and as well for protection, although I guess if I would bet there then I would do it like for $1,20. And just Check/Fold the river, there ain't much value anyways. He will most of the time just fold if he doesn't have the flush.

      Best regards.

      What if we have reads on villain that he chases draws like nuts and also wudn't let go any Kx, or 2 pairs ?

      Is it then possible to check/call the river ? or we shuda fold because of the 4th heart no matter what ?

      I don't think that he would really bet there anyways while not having the flush if he is rather passive opponent. And to avoid such a situation and I am often times betting it as well bigger on turn to make ready for Check/Fold against big bets if a flush arrives.
