      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      Button ($12.55)
      SB ($5.80)
      Hero (BB) ($21.75)
      UTG ($10.00) 53/7/1.7/31 236 hands
      MP ($10.00)
      CO ($8.95)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:diamond: 10:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.25) 7:spade: 7:diamond: K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, UTG calls $0.15

      I pick up a FD, so i bet.

      Turn: ($0.55) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, UTG raises to $0.70, Hero calls $0.35

      I get my Flush. But villain is minraising here. That is often a very strong hand on NL10SH. So i just call, with the intention of c/c the river.

      River: ($1.95) 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.50, Hero ?

      Villain bets quite high. Hero ?

      T high flush against that player? You have the best hand, really. I'd re-raise on the turn and try to get all my money, if he has a higher flush it's a cooler, but it's very unlikely with that stats, he probably has an ace or something.

      I´d also like to get all-in on the turn. UTG could easily hold here 7x or maybe Ax. As played: call river. You can´t fold flush in small pot.

      Heads up i think you definitely have the best hand 9/10.

      Must call. You have played the hand as if you were weak - scared of the flush - checking the river, setting him up for the big bluff - take the $...

      Basic principles say - paired board flush might be no good - but its a cooler if he has a book heads up. It is much more likely he has 7x Ax or air. Just flat call his river bet if you are worried.

      So what happened in the end?

      I called. He had K7o and flopped the FH. So my "read" was right that the minraise was a monster. But as you all said it is very possible that he has a hand that i beat, too. So 3betting and going broke here might be the more profitable play.
