      First I feared a flush, but then deducted he wouldn't have bet for it. Turns out he slowplayed a set! How'd you detect that?

      Hi.

      We cant detect that. I think u are losong value by check calling the river. Basically he is modtly betting stronger hands and checking back weaker ones like KQ.

      We should just shove the river instead. I dont see him having too many flushes or 7x hands in his range and we beat a good amount of worse kx hands which may call the river.

      Thanks.
