      Im not a coach but just a beginner player:-)
      Here is my opinion:

      I think I would Raise turn in order to let him pay if he has a higher spade.

      On River I think it would be a call. If he has a house he would have raised your bet on flop.
      He could have a higher flush but I think this is unlikely and just bad luck if so:-)

      Hello tardytojas,

      Welcome to the NL 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!

      Preflop: Do you think you can play even profitable such hands? Of course it's possible but most likely people doing mistake postflop with such hands. And what even happened, for that given part I would rather advice not to play with such a hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, of course your line is totally fine. Raising the turn might not bring us much while we could easily be against better flushes and most likely we are making a lot worse to fold anyways. And as played the river is super-standard-snap-fold, we are never beating there anything. FH beats us, better flushes possible. What do we beat vs his shipping range for being so deep?

      Best Regards.

      Thank you, then I made good decision and I will try to be less aggressive pre flop.

      Well, if you have good postflop experience then your raise isn't even that bad. :) But I doubt that you have them, so for that reason it should be rather a fold.
