      Hello,

      Preflop I like isolating here.

      On the flop I'd go for a cbet here with two overcards and flush draw. We can make better hands to call (Kx/Ax) and we will be more than happy to just take down the pot right here.

      As played on the flop, checking the turn is good.

      I think calling the river is good here.
      I expect him to bet Ks most of the time, also we didn't show any strength so calling is ok by me.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I thought he also could have Ks in his hand (he did). You say you'd expect him to bet with the king of spades most of the time, so surely it wasn't a good idea for me to call?

      I meant that I expect him to bet the Ks on the previous streets so for me calling here is fine.
