      Hero raises to $1, fold, CO calls $1, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($2.35) 4:heart: T:heart: T:diamond:

      Hero bets $1.25, CO calls $1.25

      TURN ($4.85) 4:heart: T:heart: T:diamond: 6:heart:

      Hero bets $2.75, CO calls $2.75

      RIVER ($10.35) 4:heart: T:heart: T:diamond: 6:heart: K:heart:
      Hero ???

      Villain is not full stacked so he is presumably a fish.

      I expect to get called on the turn by small pp's so I was thinking about making a 4-5$ bet on the river in order to get him off an "accidentally" rivered 5 or 3 high flush.

      I think the K:heart: greatly reduces the big flush combos to mostly the nut ones.

      In short = Don't do it !!

      Esp @NL25 - you'll save yourself a lot of money ...
      Unless you know the villain rly well, don't do it.

      One big mistake improving players do @ micros ...
      Do not bluff the fish without solid equity.

      Small PP's will call you down, often they will do it with the :heart:
      and in their mind they aren't bluffcatching ...

      They are HOPING to hit that heart and once they do, it's jackpot in their eyes ...

      Seriously, they don't fold these flushes ever ...

      And esp vs unknown fish it's just pointless guessing game whether they'll fold or not ... usually they don't

      And another common mistake - betsizings.

      BET BIGGER !! (esp vs fish who are clueless)

      Agree. Bet bigger flop & turn but don't go bluffing fishes on rivercards like these. The problem is that he will have alot of :heart: in his range and isnt likely to fold the river. Furthermore I think they're stupid enough to call with random T that they slowplay aswell. Just don't make a habit of bluffing the fish :)

      problem is that he would not fold flush and only hand that you can make him fold is Kx, but that is quite hard him to have and if he is fish, he may also call you down
      So I would prefer just c/f with your showdown value
