      I think a player like this is going to showdown a lot with medium/weak hands he probably holds to top/medium pair a lot.
      I expect him to be passive when he has a hand with not much value or when he is drawing, and I expect him to bet strong hands.
      Though I saw him before trying a couple of bluffs before.

      My main question for this hand is am I completely misreading it being to obvious that he is drawing and hits the flush on the river, or holds a 5 and tries to see if its good, or will a player like him bluff enough times here to make my call profitable? I think my read on him before the hand was good and I just don't know I should have played the river.

      I think if the flush hits and I don't bet, I can easily be bluffed and lay down the best hand, though when being raised, I think there's to much money in the pot to fold.

      Hello johnnyanghell,

      You could bet it bigger on flop ~$0,20 and as well bigger on turn ~$0,40. And as played it's definitely Bet/Fold while even some draws completed and a lot better hands are possible. He ain't shoving there without having a made hand.

      Best regards.
