      Flop check back is fine, there might even be an argument for just turning your hand into a bluff on the Flop, especially if you know that CO is always giving up and you want to protect against 4 overs and a ton of other random overcards.

      Turn is definitely a raise, I doubt this guy would have folded his Ac6c to you. We want to build the pot now.

      River overbet is fine if you think he has flush very often because you think
      1) he always cbets 9X or better on the Flop
      2) He is improved by the turn and since you have 2 4s he either has a straight, a busted 5X straight draw or a flush
      3) He rarely calls a normal size big bet anyway with hands worse than 9X because the King scares him and so does the completion of the flush
      4) Fishes don't fold flushes and straights to huge overbets

      I must say I'm impressed with the river play, though it's a crime not to raise turn.

      Hello Lumonster,

      Flop: As long nobody has shown interest in the pot I would just Bet the flop and protect our hand from overcards. :)

      As played
      Turn: Raise for value and build up the pot. :) Will be pretty difficult to get a lot value on the river when it's so small pot.

      As played
      River: As long he will always Call with 2x and of course with flush I don't mind your shove at all! Most likely would have picked the same line.

      Best Regards.
