      Hello Sikac,

      Really dumb spot, especially when you are even in multiway pot and it's very likely that some may even have better flush. So going for pot control ain't like a huge mistake. But now again, what would you do if the guy bets turn bigger and ship the river? :)

      Best Regards.

      I would still call the turn but on the river again I would eventually fold especially against the CO because I have him recorded for something like 1500 hands and I never saw him bluffing that is the reason why I called the flop and because it is a freeplay.

      Especially with your reads I doubt that there is much to do.
