      Hello slashng,

      Preflop: Depending on the opponent and if he is not nitty player then you can as well just 3bet here for value.

      As played
      Flop: Seems to be fine with the implied odds.
      Turn: Although I would rather consider here as well like Check/Raising. Although donking ain't wrong, while we just trying him to avoid the Check behind.
      River: I guess not much to do, I would likely as well Call it here for the given odds. He may even sometimes ship a lot worse hands, not just flushes only. Plus the flush is backdoor one and which is even less likely him to have. Of course it happens time to time but don't let it tilt you.

      Best regards.

      Thanks veriz for the hand evaluation! Now i understand the last call was correct due to the implied odds.
