      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with Q :club: 5 :club:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls 0.10, 7 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop (0.25) 3 :club: 2 :club: 9 :diamond:

      Hero shows Q :club: 5 :club:
      UTG+1 shows 5 :diamond: 5 :heart:

      Hero wins 1.95 with Flush (Clubs) with Queen high

      Should I have bet differently on the flop? Made a bet on the turn instead of check/calling?

      I like it because you are against one player. If there were more players I would play more passively on the flop.

      You played that hand very well here. On the flop you were in a HU situation in an unraised pot and you hold a draw here with at least 9 Outs. Maybe your Q out is good as well. So you might play with 12 Outs and you have fold equity against your opponent, so your flop bet is fine.

      On the turn you do not improve and plan play check/fold if he bets big. Since he is betting so small you got good odds + implied odds to call for your 12 outs here. On the river you bet again after you improve.

      So good yes. :)
