      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      BTN: $9.31 (58.2 bb)
      SB: $4.20 (26.3 bb)
      BB: $16 (100 bb) 30/27/3.0/16.7/65/147
      Hero (CO): $16 (100 bb) 15/8/2.8/7.4/40/104

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      Hero raises to $0.48, 2 folds, BB calls $0.32

      Flop: ($1.04) 5 Q 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.64, BB calls $0.64

      Ok, so semi-bluff C-Bet with TPTK and nut flush draw. If he raises I'll call cause I'll have a lot of implied odds. Is this ok or should i have check/called? If bet to know where I am
      1. If he doesn't have :spade: s he'll fold.
      2. If he has 1 :spade: or is trying to float he'll call.
      3. If he has 2 :spade: s he'll raise. He'll also raise with a set so I'll know what I need to win exactly.

      Turn: ($2.32) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      He called so I put him on 1 :spade: and I don't need to protect the hand anymore cause I'll hit a better flush. I check for two reasons
      1. If he hits on the river he'll bet and I'll get value out of him. he might fold if I bet turn.
      2. If he doesn't hit or was floating all along then he'll bluff on the river and I'll call him.

      River: ($2.32) 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      I'm pretty sure he's bluffing with a busted draw or he was floating all along. The bet amount however seems kinda low. If he had a flush then nothing about this hand makes sense cause he should have raised to protect, same with set so my TPTK is good enough and I think I also induced a bluff on the river where he could have folded to my turn bet.
