      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , J:club:
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, MP1 folds, CO calls $0.60.

      I 3-bet pre-flop as I believed him to be stealing

      Flop: ($1.95) Q:heart: , 7:heart: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Ooo-er! Not nice - OOP I decided to check - should I have c-bet here protecting myself against the inevitable flush draw?

      Turn: ($1.95) A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.6, Hero calls $0.60.

      River: ($3.15) A:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.6, Hero calls $1.60.

      Final Pot: $6.35

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows a flush, ace high (Kh 5s)
      Hero shows (Ac Jc)

      CO wins with a flush, ace high (Kh 5s)

      Hello Spidey1978,

      Nah, I don't think that I would CBet against such a station. Most likely just Check/Fold as you did.

      As played I don't really see what hands you beat there, most likely I would rather Check/Fold the river EVEN if I am calling the turn. If he had a bluff then I doubt that he is betting as a bluff on river anymore.

      Although myself I would just Check/Fold the turn rather than Check/Call it, even CBetting the flop is better.

      Best regards.
