      i was amazed how bad i played this hand...
      when the flush come out i decided to bet/fold it cause i did not wanted to show weakness

      i think my mistake was on the river cause i should just check/fold i guess :(
      for some reason i decided to bet/fold the river but after he shoved i realise i was commited :(

      what do you think ?

      Hello w4terman,

      There ain't many worse hands which pay you on the river, he has to be super-loose ever to Call vs your Bet there. But especially if you are not able to fold it even then doesn't make sense betting in first place -> rather Bet/Fold it. I can't really see what we have beat on the river and you rarely of course going to be even ahead. Get used to Bet/Folding if you Bet.

      I'd myself just Check/Fold the river without knowing the opponent and which should be pretty standard there.

      Best Regards.
