      I don't mind making larger Flop and Turn bets vs the fish.

      On the River our options are either to bet/fold or check/fold. if we want to bet, given that the flush card is a bad card and CO is only left with slightly under a pot size bet left, we cannot bet half pot or more. We need to block bet like you did here and fold to a raise.

      Which is better? The looser and more passive the villain is preflop, the more I prefer your line. The tighter the villain is preflop, the more I prefer check/fold cos he will have fewer AX hands to hero-call on the River with.

      I think I like your line here. Nice hand.
