      Flop: 2:spade: K:spade: 7:spade: ($2.1, 2 players)

      BB checks, [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $6[/color], [color:#cc0000]BB raises to $18[/color], Hero calls.

      I’m very frustrated with my call on the river, just wasting 12$ since the only possible hands that he’d c/r the river is the ace or a full house…he wouldn’t play the J this way at all. Anyways my question is about whether I should ‘value’ bet the second nut flush on the river, or just check behind, I think checking behind is a better option now that I look at it.

      I think it's unlikely he has A :spade: and he could have a flush right on the flop so your value bets with 2nd nuts are fine IMO. Calling his re-raise on the river I don't know... you got pot odds 3:1 and I believe he won't have an A :spade: 1 in 4 times.

      I check the turn behind sometimes to induce bluffs and because youre not gettin value 2 streets from a worse hand that often. of course against the right opponent its two easy vbets...So my line is cb turn, call or bet river. as played easy fold to the cr.
