      1. your turn bet size could be bit bigger.
      I would make it 3$.We probly have the best hand already and if we hit nuts chances are he will have flushas well and willpay us few bbs extra.

      c/f on river was mistake imo.

      I dont think he often has 5 there and if he has flush himself he would of raise turn.
      So hes range is pair + FD, mearly FD or weaker kings and we beat each.

      Problem with checking on river is that we give him a chance to bluff since he wrap us on busted flush draw.
      So making 1/3 psb bet and fold to raise is best play here imo.
      He will never raise us with worst hand.

      Hello tadejusce,

      Bet the flop a bit bigger & also Bet it bigger on the turn, if he has a hand he is going to pay you anyways.

      But as played as we get raised it becomes really close, would depend a lot on the opponent. Against passive ones we might even consider taking the passive approach and Call and reevaluate it on the river. So therefore, as played seems to be fine and I don't mind your play at all, you just beat bluff on the river anyways.

      Best Regards.
