      hi steedler

      i think when you hit on the turn you should have raised villain's bet. you have ~14 outs and so you are in very good shape.

      about your raise on the river you maybe could have raised a little smaller like between 70c and $1. the smaller your raise the more likely a weaker hand is calling but i dont think the bet is too bad - i think in this sort of hand your implied odds for when you do hit your flush are pretty low given the fact that you call, call and raise when the 3rd :club: comes. the board is pretty raggedy and he probably wouldnt have called any raise here if he didn't have a straight or a lower flush. nice hand

      Hello steedler,

      Well, I doubt that your play is totally off here. He will anyways have hard time calling with a lot worse on turn if you raise. I'd play the same way, although I'd shove the river. :)

      Best Regards.
