      Erm....the only hand I can see him pushing the river with is a flush.

      Tough spot on the river. I probably would bet around $6 on the turn and if called check/call-fold the river, not sure it's a tough spot.

      But as played I guess you have to call.

      I'm happy to play for my stack with a set here, even if it looks like he may have a flush, there are plenty of times he wont have it and the value bet will be paid off.

      I would bet more on the flop/turn and push river.
      Then you don´t have to worry if opponent has flush or not and making thought laydown or crying call.
