      BB was 53/31/0 over 33.

      PREFLOP
      Standard OR.

      FLOP
      Value bet vs lower PPs and FDs.

      TURN
      Pot controlling.
      In retrospect, I could make another thin value bet vs many possible draws.

      RIVER
      Thin value bet vs lower PPs.
      When raise I figured he was spazzing out with missed FD.
      I assume he dbets Qx/spade flush on the river.
      I assume he c/calls Jx/lower PPs.
      His play could only be slowplayed quads (44) or 55 so I opted to bluffcatch.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I do agree with your line here because his line doesn't make much sense. Most people bet the backdoor flush there and I doubt Qx ck/raises even if it checks the river.

      It's possible that he slowplayed some 4x but unlikely as well.

      As far as the turn check vs bet goes I think that checking is ok but if we bet we can't make it too large.
