      FLOP
      I have 6 outs + back-doors so easy c-bet. Villains calling range still is pretty wide: Ax, 2 overs, 55+

      TURN
      Should I bet again to make a pot bigger, if I hit on the river? Free cards is tempting.

      RIVER
      My bet is too small, worse flush will always call a pot-size bet.
      Should I try to get it in vs such a player? He still might call with a worse flush.

      think the hand is well played. my river plan would be to bet/fold.
      dont think fish is overplaying 5x/worse flushes, i would certainly never attempt to get it in on this river. however vs villain's tiny xr i might call to gain info, and we only have to be good around 1/4 times to break even/

      Yeah, I never really want to go broke with 3rd flush.
      In the end I did call for the odds, he`s easily raising worse flushes.

      Indeed, he had AxTh.

      in general i dont often see fishes xr Th flushes on 4 card flush boards, but then again i havent played nl4 in quite awhile.

      i wouldn't 3bet river as i find it hard to see worse hands villain can call with, but then again this villain is particularly awful....

      This call was pretty easy: as you can see, villain is 100/0 :D

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Getting it in on the river = result oriented = hardly overplaying your hand. You rarely see anything worse paying you anyways there.

      What you could consider is even folding the hand cause you clearly don't beat much there. What do you think he is raising you with? He has to be bluffing to make such a call profitable.

      Best Regards.
