      I bet the flop for value/protection with my overpair. I didn't want to build up a large pot, but playing c/c on the turn could have put me in an awkward position on the river. So the decision was between c/f and c/r.

      BU shows a flush, queen high(9c Qc).

      BU wins with a flush, queen high(9c Qc).

      nothing wrong going to pot control if flushdraw got there on the turn, so I think c/c turn and c/c blank river is fine. If you want you can also bet/fold turn and bet/fold river. Don´t like c/r turn, since this way you´re very often just isolating against better hands and you really don´t want to play stacks at that point if he shoves over your turn raise.
