      Should I always bet the turn? I called the river bet because I checked the turn and flush didn't hit.

      Hello,

      Preflop I think calling is fine. Also you could consider 3betting if our opponent does not fold a lot.

      Raising the flop is ok since there are a lot of draws and his bet is very weak.

      I prefer betting the turn here. We can easily get value out of Jx and draws and we don't get to call a river bet.

      The river is interesting.
      I think that I'd probably fold against this big bet since he looks passive and I am not really sure if he bets busted draws here.

      Best,
      Plamen
