      I felt like a real sucker after this one! I don't know if this is classed as a cooler or not. What do you guys think? Should this have been a reluctant fold since it was pretty much a small pot originally?

      What's the poker rule? Don't go broke in unraised pots :D

      but here decision is also dependent on how much info have you got on SB

      Hi,

      I think better is to fold river. There are very few players who would overbet shove river with their nut flush blocker, like As4x and you basically still have to be right around half the times. Since most of the times overbets are for value it should be fold.

      Good luck at the tables,

      Hello Ghartman,

      Someone pressed the ! button. But anyways. About the play well, calling the flop already is questionable since you will have a 7 high flush. And if you are going to do exactly such mistakes then rather don't Call. Since you wont most likely have even implied odds here in freeplay pot.

      As played should be standard fold on the river, he will rarely shove there with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
