      On this hand I called thinking if I don't hit I will still try to bluff villian off his hand.

      Given this thought process I figure that I should have raised turn to represent the flush, caling turn then betting river seems less credible?

      As played I think that he was going to fold if he hadn't rivered his set so as weird as it may sound I almost feel like I got rivered.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Just fold it right on flop, we can't even be sure what outs are clean for us. Neither you didn't say anything about his CB. Even raising right on flop most likely might seem to be better idea.

      As played just fold it on the turn, you might even be drawing for reversed implied odds. And of course I am not betting the river vs such a player, doubt he is folding any pair there anyway.

      Best Regards.
