      O.K so far i'm having a great day post flop. hope it never stops.

      I hit my straight on the flop, but with a possible flush draw as well so I put a pot size bet in hoping every body would fold, but as you can see on villain stats he had played 50% of his hands.

      Since he had not folded to my raise I put him on PP or 2clubs. I did not want to put in a pot size bet on the turn because now I was scared for the flush and this is always a problem with me I always think i'm going to get beaten on later streets.

      The river is a club, but he did not bet? Now I am thinking is he slow playing or bluffing. I did not take the chance and just checked.

      My question here is should I have bet more pre flop to take the pot since i dont like to play out flops like this. Win is a win for me I can get more $$$ later.

      On the river should I have known that he did not have the flush?

      Sorry about all the essays just want people to understand what I am thinking

      Hello Droewors,

      I don't really get your line here at all? Why do you Check turn behind? You have the nuts! Bet for value and protect your hand. :( Also as played I'd still Bet the river.

      Best Regards.
