      I thought he made his flush on the turn, so I didn't raise as I thought he'd check raise me. Turns out he rivered it instead.

      Preflop: u could add another 1-2 bb to your raise size. At nl2 people play way too loose and we want toraise larger so that we can isolate a single opponent.

      Flop: standard bet/fold spot

      Turn: i agree with the turn check on such a bad card.

      River: ez fold on this river card. For those odds i dont rly mind a call though but im folding vs a larger bet. What about a non heart blank card like 2? Vs a small bet i would call cos we could still be beating hands like JT or J9.. Vs a large bet i would just fold - dont expect to be beating too many worse hands.
