      Hit my straight draw on river, but flush draw hits too.

      Should make a crying fold or is it even fairly standard once we step back and look at it?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP3:
      $1.91
      Hero:
      $2.29

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:heart: , J:heart:

      Flop: ($0.21) T:diamond: , 9:diamond: , 7:heart: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.16, MP3 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.53) A:heart: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.53) K:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.53, Hero calls $0.53.

      Final Pot: $1.59

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a flush, ace high (Ad 5d)
      Hero shows (Qh Jh)

      MP3 wins with a flush, ace high (Ad 5d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, actually it's a good card even to 2nd barrel there. He may easily drop a lot of Tx hands or even worse PPs.

      But as played well, I doubt that he is bluffing there, doubt that the guy would even bet 2pairs there like that. Plus a draw completed as a flush, which is really in his calling range. I'd make a crying fold. :( Since I doubt he would bet any other made hand pot size.

      Best regards.
