      on those boards (3 cards suited flop) I tend to bet 2bb on flop and 3bb on turn, I think a normal cbet is adviced though. After that just give up unless reads.

      I had flush draw & OESD on the flop so there was no real reason not to c-bet.

      Could have then checked back turn and folded river, although a call there is still tempting given way hand was played, not many hands for him made sense.

      your flushdraw is worthless, or at least I wouldn't play with it because of the bad reverse implieds. straightdraw ain't to the nuts either, he could already have Ahigh flush.

      I would see your hand as junk on the flop, and play accordingly.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Pretty standard spot to CB here and gain some fold equity and maybe even free card for river. :)

      But as played well, I really doubt that we beat much on river which donks like that, rather does it with some showdown hand which doesn't want to pay big bet.

      Best Regards.
