      Hello acceleration123,

      Usually there is not much to do when you don't know the opponent. And usually I would even consider Check/Folding while his range will mostly consist either from draws or some strong hands, he ain't gonna have that often a weaker Ax which is betting unless it's a small bet or bluffs.

      Best regards.

      Lets assume I have a FD in that spot and playing higher limits. I double barrel and river brings my flush. Can I blufcatch here - I mean, checking since I expect villain to try a bluff when I check ?

      If you had the flush on river? Then I'd basically just ship myself than let him bet. He will most likely just Check behind his weaker holdings which he might still Call when we bet ourselves.
