      Anon table.

      BB played 56/0 after 16 hands, AFq 24 so far.

      Turn/river? On the turn I checked to give him the chance for bluffing or maybe even betting worse flushes. After he checked behind, I made a thin vbet on the river. He seemed to be passive so far, so I was not too afraid of inducing him or something like that... Or would be better to ch/call river as well?

      I would likely b/c that spot. Kh would not raise river, likely he would sometimes raise flop with Ah or bet turn himself. So I don´t feel that I need to have nuts to call his river raise.

      Also if your plan was to c/c turn and c/c river you would have loose the same amount against better flushes.

      best regards,

      i would just bet larger on the river cos i think we have the best hand really often now and i doubt he folds any heart. maybe something between 10-12 would be good.

      im not sure whether you actually induced with this size, an aggro fish might bluff and a passive fish probably wouldnt. go with your read and then call or fold.

      I think checking turn with Qh is fine, with Kh i probably bet T and then bet again small on R.
