      Hello MattDenness,

      We ain't getting here away anyways so ain't a huge difference how you play it. You can as well vs his stack just call the turn and ship the river or either play with small raise.

      Best Regards.

      I know exactly why he did this. He bet weak on the turn cause he was on a open ended straight flush draw and wanted to hit one so didn't bet strong since he didn't want the opponent to fold but he still wanted to build the pot even if it was a teeny bit. :facepalm:

      Don't understand the river bet though I haven't reached that level of thinking yet. :f_biggrin:

      The answer to that question has already been covered by my facepalm. :D You need to worry about what would have happened had he actually hit his straight flush on the river. :f_biggrin:

      But seriously I have noticed this many times in a lot of fishes. They become extra passive when they are on a straight flush or a royal flush draw and actually start slowplaying their draws cause they want to hit so bad. They don't care if they lose the hand in the process if they don't hit, they just want to hit and that will make their day.

      Obviously this guy should have check/raised the flop or donked but when they hit a draw like this they just want to call down and hit the miracle card since hitting a straight/royal flush is more important to them than winning hands and having a winning session.
