      Anon table.

      BTN is unknown, played 0/0 after 7 hands.
      Turn? After calling flop 3way, he could definitely have some flushes in his range.
      River? Push is quite strong after board paired, but I wanted to avoid checkbehind... If river blanks, like J?

      Since he didn´t called he likely had there air or some 98s hand.
      I think river should be check at any river card and depends on your gut feeling I think you need to call there sometimes even if you don´t improve.

      The turncall is really really close vs an unknown imo. We can say that this is always a flush. I probably also call

      On the river I'd still check because a reg can valueshove a flush vs 3 Aces but he should know we almost always have a FH on the river here.

      Repping a FH when you have a FH is not awesome at all. If you add that you don't rep any bluffs with your FH range you probably take one of the worst EV plays with a made hand. Up until the river it's rather straight forward. You vbet, you get raised by what is 90% of the time a flush but get great odds.

      River is a check imo. If you lead you ALWAYS rep a FH, you simply don't get with any other hands that way there, maybe AK with a diamond and you turn it into a bluff? I don't think so! If you rep a FH you won't get called by any mediocre hands. Apart from that, if you ever call light on turn with a hand like QJ with a diamond, Ax with a diamond, how can you ever call river bets if you always donk when you complete your hand? If you call turn, check river you will ALWAYS have air there because you donk when you improve your hand. Splitting your range this way will be bad long term and should only be done with a read that your opponent will always have a good made hand once he raises turn so you always lead for max value and check/fold when missed because you are behind.
