      If BU was chasing the flush then you might be ahead.
      But he could easily have A :diamond: x and he won´t fold to your river bet.
      Sometimes your Kx hand might be good here, so there´s is no point making bluffbet on the river.
      I believe that straight forward game (valuebetting with good hands and not bluffing) is better NL5.

      You could also bet a little more (0,20) on the turn, but it doesn´t increase your fold equity, so 1/2 bet was also fine.
