      I think you missed a not too thin (given that he is 48/24) value bet on the river
      i 'd bet 15$ and never fold to a shove against that type of player

      bet 11$ on the turn.

      river's a tossup.. i'm committed if i bet behind here, and i really really really don't want to pay off a very likely flush, so i prefer checking behind.

      I would re-raise more on the flop 6-7$
      Bet more on the turn
      Push river.
      He would pay you off a lot worse hands. Any flush would probably push on the river, unless he is tricky and thinks before 3-4 seconds before he checks.

      yeah, I should bet bigger.

      Personally, I hate checking the river here. I think, after I made a bet on turn, I have to bet on the river. Otherwise, I should check behind on turn, imo bet bet check is a sort of a weak play.

      However, I checked because of a flush and his flop bet, which indicated it)
