      Results follow:

      UTG1 wins with a flush, ace high(Th Jh).

      Villain stats in 70 hands :
      26(vpip)/10(pfr)/3(3bet)/100(f 3bet)/14(steal)
      67(cbet)/50(fcbet)/100(f 2nd barrel)/27(wtsd)/3.2(af)

      I bet too small on the flop thinking the board is dry, with only one flushdraw but the platform decides to punish me :D .
      My first question is if I should check/fold, as played

      If I bet 0.8$ on the flop and he has a flushdraw I offer him 1/3.4 pot odds so he has to gain another 5-3.4=1.6, that means 1.6*0.8=1.28$, from me on the turn, and he gets it because I'll have to bet the turn again and he'll have 1.3$ left. Perfect play from his part :D
      If I bet 0.9$ into 1.1$ pot isn't it a bit of an overplay/overbet from me, considering his whole range and what hands he might call? Wouldn't it isolate me against hands with a 7(A7, sc) and better aces?

      My second question is how much should I bet?

      Hey Badea,

      C-betting 0.60 is fine, you could bet a bit more, but as played is completely fine because the board indeed is dry(paired A-high with FD).

      The problem with your line is you should shove turn yourself. If you check/call then he shoves with flushes and better Ax hands while he check low Axs back. If you shove yourself you get value from worse as well.

      Best regards,
