      Hello diversfx,

      Definitely, he may easily even have worse hands like trips or whatsoever. And often times he ain't putting us on flush anyways.

      Best regards.

      Thanks I was pretty sure this was a must call given it was a back door flush and the overbet seemed like a bluff. Is that a reasonable line of thought?

      On the river? I would be interested in hearing a coach's thoughts but I would think if we raise the river we only fold out hands worse than ours and get called only by better.

      The problem is that most likely you would just isolate against better hands and he would anyways have hard time Calling there with a lot worse, rather just take the value which you get from his overbet. Would be ugly if get shoved or something when we raise while we don't have that strong flush.

      I'm never raising this river without the nut flush or fullhouse.
