      Hi,

      I feel I have to call here on the river. I think I played the hand okay until this point but was pretty baffled on the river.

      Villain stats were 23/6 so seemed pretty fishy.

      Thoughts?

      Hi Zach,

      PReflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Calling and raising versus a fish are both fine.

      Given his really strong bets I think that we should highly consider folding the turn or river. He is almost never bluffing there and we are looking at fullhouses+ or flushes.

      That's why you guys are coaches and I'm still struggling!

      I actually called. He did indeed have a flush, AKcc.

      I just never believe these guys!

      I have one more question about this hand.
      What should we do on this turn in case we raise flop, fish calls and checks turn? Bet\fold (what is good sizing?) is better than cb, right, because along with flushes he can have Kx, or PPs with :club: .

      Indeed, we would want to bet/fold. I think a 2/3 pot bet would be fine to keep getting value from Kx and anything else with a club.
