      This player shoved the river when a flush(not backdoor) got there on a separate occasion and I folded. I think the odds call on the flop is okay, and checking my OESD on turn because I don't think much will fold. But is calling the river, where i need to be right 80% of time a good idea on NL5? I struggled to put him on a flush because of the turn check.

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, T.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.45) 6, 6, J (3 players)
      SB bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0.55) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.55) K (2 players)
      SB bets $2.39(All-In), Hero calls $2.39.

      Final Pot: $5.33.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a flush, king high(Q K).
      Hero shows a straight, king high(Q T).

      SB wins with a flush, king high(Q K).

      Hello mcawezome,

      It's very often the nuts and not even a flush or anything. Could easily be some FH, although flushes are in his range as well. Therefore it's a easy fold, we don't beat much there.

      And overall I would just advice you to fold right on flop, just putting yourself into difficult spots what exactly even did happen.

      Best regards.
