      Sizings on flop and turn? Maybe bigger on the turn?

      On the river, i think betting is fine. After the raise, i don`t expect him to raise anything but a flush. I need 33% to call, and vs. this range it`s close:

      MP3 34.62% 34.62% 0.00% Tc9c

      But perhaps he raises some of the weaker flushes on the turn?

      I would usually bet 1-2bb bigger on the turn and definitely 4-5bb bigger on the river given the bigger turn size.

      As played, Why do you think he would only raise weaker flushes before the river? Have you seen a tendency in this vs most people on your stakes? It could be correct but I never found someone being more likely to just call a higher flush than a lower one here.

      Anyway, I would say it's as close as you put it there. It's actually maaaybe less close in the sense that people don't raise for thin value either and he doesn't limp in all worse flushing cards meaning he has more higher suited cards than the lower stuff so it's a fold. Nice hand imo! Great that you had the self control to fold what seems like a super hand in a close spot.
