      Hey Burek/Gerv,

      Hope all is good.

      So I was just wondering if I should have checked the river? On the turn I have 68% equity so I think the bet is fine, but I was in doubt about my betting the river - what do you think?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Final Pot: $8.15.

      Results follow:

      BU shows a flush, ace high(Qh Ah).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kh Ks).

      BU wins with a flush, ace high(Qh Ah).

      Thanks,

      Hey,

      When I read ''I have x equity'' then you are doing it wrong because you are results orientated equilating your hand versus his hand

      Now why do you bet so super small on the Turn? You are ahead versus his range and you should bet as big as you can to prevent him from (correctly) sucking out on you

      As played i would still shove but betting bigger on the Turn is a must

      Best regards,
      Gerv
