Can i get away from this hand in some other way? Im playing agaisnt a fish , i was thinking he had the flush as well on the river but if not i have to go for it. Should I just take the call on river insted of going all in? what do guys think is the right way here?

3betting the river is obviously wrong if you think he has the flush. you beat literally zero flush combinations.

actually, if you think that he has the flush just bet/fold the river. what worse do you think he is raising there?

so u mean it is okey to fold ? i was sure he had a flush as well but if he has it its just a bad beat right? I think he can do that with some strights and sets as well.. maybe just a call there is the right way to go?

he won't raise sets and straights because not even a fish raises these hands there when you bet big when the obvious draw completes.

also, a straight would mean that is a backdoor straight, only realistic possibility would be something like K J (or K J obv)

[edit: lol KJ, wtf is wrong with me? no wonder i'm having a downer make that JT

also, fold preflop from first pos, your flop sizing is also somewhat weird against a fish]

villain almost never has sets as he would raise either flop or turn on such a wet board. also pretty tough for villain to have straight other than JThh/JTss and i think JThh just calls river.

would most likely bet/fold river, and definitely wouldnt 3bet river

Personaly I think it's a fold on the turn as we have only 25% eq vs a queen we don't have implied outs those outs we have are more likely reverse implied. We won't ever get much value once we hit, he will fold or call all worse hands.
