      I would have raised it up to 14c preflop, but I guess completing there isn't so bad

      Like the potbet on the flop

      Crappy spot to be in with that hand when the turncard fell. No harm in betting out there with your flush though.

      River : I'd fold and look for a more profitable spot to throw it in. Villain could be calling preflop and flop with a large range of hands and there are quite some cards that have you beat. That all-in on the river might well be villain's idea of a "valueshove" on the microlimits.
      Or you could try a blocking bet to decrease the amount of bluffs there and fold to a shove

      Hi TheBrood,

      Don't raise it PF, just call, with this kind of hand you want a multiway pot and a cheap flop, you could raise if you think you could take the hand down PF, here you won't take it down, so just call and see a flop.

      Flop is fine.

      Turn too, no reason to bet there. If he has the flush, he's got you, and no worse hands are going to call your bet. After his bet, you can call, you might still be ahead.

      River I'd fold too, I don't see villain bluffing too often in this spot, not often enough to make a call profitable

      Well, NH then! :)

      EDIT: mistakes corrected now, sorry for mixing up the words. :)

      Im not sure what you mean by

      "no better hands are going to call your bet."

      and

      "I don't see villain folding too often in this spot, not often enough to make a call profitable"

      but its good to know I played it well =)

      I suppose you have to replace "better" by "worse" and "folding" by "bluffing" :)

      Oh, shit dude... I was probably tired. :D

      But Hellrabbit figured it out.

      I meant...

      "no worse hands are going to call your bet"

      and

      "I don't see villain bluffing too often in this spot"

      I'm gonna edit the first post. :)
