      No stats on villain so far (sample).

      Do you think checking behind the turn is ok ? I think that if I bet I wont get called by much worse here as I either rep the flush or he is on the flush himself and is trapping.

      Is the river raise size ok ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Flop: You can even raise bigger here ~$1.
      Turn: Why not to bet? There are still a lot of hands which may Call us and they include as well some 1card FD.

      As played
      River: Hehe, you went for value this time I see. :D Guess it's pretty close while not really knowing the villain, although he might still have few pair/2pair type of hands in his range as well. But mainly 2pairs are going to Call us. And his bet ain't very strong either, rather like a block-bet and according to that shouldn't be that big mistake to raise it although thin one.

      Best regards.

      Turn - because I think that a) he could have called with FD on the flop

      b) if he is somewhat thinking and has like Ax here then if I bet here I just rep the Flush.

      River - mainly I think Flush is gonna make it bigger.

      Reasonable but he may as well have a lot of AX type of hands while he did raise it from UTG and he doesn't have that many FD type of hands in his range rather AX.

      Do you think I should ship it if I bet the turn and got check raised ?

      Unfortunately nope, we wont get Check/Raised there by worse hands anyways. And that's as well sometimes the reason why I would consider Checking behind. :) Just curious, what did he have then? :D

      But I still have the outs for FH don´t I ? And the pot will be kinda big.

      Of course you do. :) But that's not always the reason to Check behind while you rather know that he doesn't have that many FD type of hands in his range from UTG.
