      I think I played this hand well enough. What about the bet sizing?

      Hey,

      I think I raise to 40cents on the River. Maybe I barrel the TUrn to triple barrel it if I see some fold equity

      Otherwise checking the Turn is fine if you dont :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      I just noticed how passive my opponent played when he hit his flush on the flop, and afterwards.

      Does he know something I don't (maybe because he had such small pocket cards or because monotone on the flop means it's more like that I have flush too?) or is this just strange play?

      What's the point of playing small suited connectors otherwise if you don't bet big when you hit?

      He's afraid that you have a better flush or wants to see a safe turn/river card to know for sure he has the best hand = losing value :)
