      Turn: Your Turn reraise is way too small. Notice that you guys are deep, and each of you only invested 10$ in the pot and there is 23$ left in stacks with a 20$ pot on the River. You should make the Turn bet significantly larger, to 12$.

      River: Should we bet the River? I think he reps either a draw or some two pair that isn't strong enough to push the Turn. I'm really not sure if he would call that when the flush completes. Then again, a fish is less likely to check/raise the Turn with a semi-bluff so that greatly reduces the likelihood of him having a flush on the River.

      Because of that, I think we should probably bet half pot and fold to a raise.
