      This guy floated me a hand before and he bet pretty small on the turn but there was no way he could bet as a bluff in that spot (I don't remember exactly the board), now he bets big on the turn. My plan was to bluff catch his float on the turn but I wasn't sure if I should check-raise or check-call. On the river he bets big again but I don't see much sense, he couldn't have a set on the flop the way he played it, so he's only representing a big flush, but he would probably raise that flushdraw on the flop, unless he floated on the flop with a backdoor and made a one card flush. Lol, I called.

      I should have made the hand easier by check-raising the turn but how am I playing the river in that case? Please notice how the board always gets incredibly dirty whenever I slowplay, 4 card flushes or straights :)

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Guess I'd rather go for 2nd barrel and protect my hand vs his floats which most likely are able to float again. Not the greatest card to turn our hand into bluff-catcher, there are too many bad cards which we don't want to see and at the same time we can't Check/Raise either, not many worse will Call you.

      On the river it's totally towards the opponent and how we see him playing. Some may even Check behind those A:sX hands so it could also cut down his range. Neither I don't see him betting with K or anything similar this amount.

      Best Regards.
