      Why would you bet like that when you hit a flush?It's obvious you hit it if you bet like that.Villain is VPIP 20 PFR 10 AF 2 AFq 44 WTSD 31 in 278 hands.So my question is could i have called here?If i play for value no i could'nt but if i like to make close calls and with any read that he does not play his monsters like that i could even shoved i think.

      What about calling to see if we hit full house or quad on the river?

      Hey,

      After being 3 way from the flop to the turn, it's clear he has a straight of better imo so you could only call to draw to the fullhouse. Even without reviewing, it's easy to see he called with a draw on the flop (set and 2pair check/raises) and when he leads the card that completes a bunch of draws for full pot, it's kind of unlikely to be anything else but that.

      LE: Why did you raise so small on the flop though? It's an easy raise to about $4 there...

      Yes it's a small raise, but why to 4? 4 it's 16 big blinds, should i raise 5 times the donk bet + 1 BB when it's a heavy drawy board like that?

      Raise relative to the pot and board texture and considering stack/pot ratio, not based on previous bet sizing from your oppnents. If someone minbets in a 40bb pot, I'm raising to 30bb, not 3bb for example.
