      I won that hand, but I really don't know how to play this on turn/river. Flush came in on turn, i bet he calls. On the river for some reason i gave up, but still called his bet. I don't know is it correct or wrong in these kind of situations. I only started to play recently don't blame me :f_cry: . Thanks!

      Hello rihards10,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      The problem with Check/Call there is that you can't really make him bluff with a lot of hands. Do you even expect him to bluff in those spots? By that I mean mostly he is turning any hand into bluff if he bets like this. So you only beat pure bluff or it's some kind of strong hand. For those reason given I'd rather block-bet/Fold myself than go for such a hero-call as you made.


      Best regards.
