      Hey man,

      Wondering if I should have made the river call?

      Obviously any diamond beat me, and I gave it to him.

      No real stats on him, not enough hands. But seemed to be a bit fishy.

      But should I have even bothered to bet flop/turn? If he was drawing for the flush then maybe? In which case probably not bet the turn, even if I did hit a set?

      Also, didn't see that he had called PF, otherwise would have raised to 0.08

      Many thanks

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Betting the flop & turn is totally fine and I guess I would be more inclined to fold it on river as well, even it's such a small donk-bet. It could easily mean that he just has some kind of weak flush, which tries to block-bet and at the same time tries to get value.

      And yes, preflop even $0,10.

      Best regards.
