      Is my flush usually good against a raise when the flush card appears?
      How high should my flush be before raising or calling a raiser?

      With a backdoorflush, I would go broke with this hand with typical any flush.

      With a Jack flush while only the Axs and Kxs can beat you, I would just go all-in asap.

      You can't presume that somebody is holding a better flush here, he might as well hold an A or a 6 and hit his straight. So you can easily go broke with the 3rd nuts here :)

      nh.

      Edit: Forgot to answer your 2nd question. In this situation I'd even go broke with the lowest possible flush.

      So a pot size bet on the river?
      Would a shove scare away villains?

      Ye, potsize bet would tell you everything about others. If they raise you easily fold but it's only my opinion :P Lets see judges advice.

      I like any flush here. They might be raising even a weak top pair after no action on the flop and turn. Also, the wheel just competed, so any ace is willing to invest money here.

      Well played I guess. Of course potsize bet on the river is a little bit better since the pot is so small.
