      Hello Oly0909,

      Turn: There is not that much value on the turn anymore, FD completed and of course Kx better Jx possible. Therefore while it's a freeplay pot I would even consider just Checking the turn and reevaluating his actions.

      As played
      River: Well, what do you beat there? :) Even a flush is turned into bluff or he has to be really dumb not understanding that FH is possible. :D So therefore I am not a huge fan of calling the raise without any specific reads either he is capable of bluffing or not. But again, it's a freeplay pot and at the best you just split the money unless he is bluffing.

      Best Regards.
