      (Rake: $0.76)

      I think he is a weak reg, not aggressive (I don't expect him to bluff raise postflop, rarely float or preflop 4bet), he folded 75% to 3bet preflop 3 from 4 times, opens in MP about 30%.

      Is it ok to play this line? bet small on river to force fold any pair but not flushes

      Hey,

      Preflop is fine when he folds quite often to 3bets.

      When you get called, you should expect him to have a strong range going into postflop. This brings me to the question: what is your reasoning for cbetting? What is your plan for the rest of the hand against him? If you answer that we can go more into your actual play and what I prefer as a line instead of yours since I think it's not +EV the way you played.

      well he had a flushdraw, I bet to protect from flushes. As played on flop, how would you play the river?

      I would either bet big to make him fold midflushes as well (so like 3/4 pot) or check/fold if I thin he doesn't fold flushes.

      Your bet on the flop assumes you are ahead of his range otherwise it makes no sense on stopping your TP semi-bluff on the ace turn. I think check/calling flop is a reasonable option and otherwise you have to 3 barrel this runout to make him fold hands like the one he had. Some middle pairs without redraw fold turn and small flushes will fold river imo.
