      I was afraid he had flush on the river, should I check instead? Was it overplayed?

      Hi ramadas.

      It's not that easy to make a flush - They did nothing which indicated that they could have flush draws on the Flop. A lot of the time these guys would just bet with their draws.

      At the same time, your kicker is really weak. I don't like a big bet here - He could easily have a stronger Queen like he did here.

      Your half pot bet seems ok to me.
