      I think I needed to bet the turn to protect against a 4th spade falling even though one of the hands I had him on after the flop was a flush draw. On the river I think he has a flush but don't think I can fold trips (he could be betting a J with a worse kicker than me like this also maybe)

      Your opponent's line looks like he has a flush, but you just have to win 25% of the time. He could also have two pair(65) and a weaker J like you said.

      I would also call river, although villain line seems like flush. But you're getting good odds to see showdown.

      If he called the flop and he is on draw he would probably have it on the turn. I'd notbet higher on the flop to protect against that, of course, because you are unsure about having the best hand, but i'd be frickin scared of a flush on the turn. I'd check/call it and see if i hit a FH and if i don't i'd ckeck/call the river as well. If the bet on the river would be high after my line I'd probably fold it too ... i don't think he'd have J and weaker kicker in a lot of cases ... every flush and JK or higher beats you.

      That would be my thinking.
