      River is a call for me. I'm against value raising because you do see a flush here a reasonable amount of the time AND you represent a flush when you raise which makes it a tougher call from Kx, Qx.

      I do have some questions though:

      Why not cbet the flop against him?

      Why not bomb the turn?

      Cbet flop: dont know, probably would be better. Was little too cautious yesterday.
      On turn bigger bet seems better (2$).
