      I think one of my leaks is that I check behind too many rivers with good hands, just because a better hand is possible and I'm scared of being raised. So, a part of my game that I am working on is to bet/fold for value more often in such situations.

      Is this hand a good spot? I think Tx is unlikely (unlikely to call flop in the first place, and should have raised turn on such a drawy board), flush is possible but also unlikely (only SCs 87s and below which is very few combos, because most other suited hands are blocked). So I'm betting to get called by Ax that thinks it's splitting, and folding to a raise.

      I think it's fine, very thin though. I do not expect him to raise Tx on the turn, and an unkown can definitely have more flushes than some SCs here. With that said, it might be OK still since he should have a lot of aces as well. But this is v v thin, and I certainly wouldn't mind just checking back.
