      i don't really like my bet sizing on the turn and the river, was kinda scared hard by the flush possibility.. would like some advice on what line to take here, check/call, check/call?

      Hello MikeF,

      Turn: For the reason that the flush hit on turn I even sometimes like to play Check/Call there for the reason would be ugly if we get raised and it could very often be a flush and we wouldn't get that great odds anymore. But while we still can hit FH on river if we Check/Call and even likely get the implied odds. And if you want to bet then yes, do it bigger, such a small bet just indicates you are scared of the flush.

      As played
      River: You could as well just Check/Call and take a look how he does react here. Although when you are betting then the block-bet/Fold somehow works but the question now is if he can as well shove here with 2pairs?

      Best regards.
