      Preflop? Do you call or just 3bet vs. UTG, without info?

      Postflop, i decided just to ch/c flop, don`t see much point in raising.

      On the river, i thought that a value bet is thin. After he bet, i could probably call, but i`m not really thrilled about that. I don`t think that he has JT/KQ often. He might have smth. like KT/KJ, maybe AK, that checked for pot control on the turn, so i decided to raise with the nut flush bloker?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Think preflop is borderline, I generally just bluff preflop in this spot.

      Calling flop is fine. You have a solid draw and while raising is likely +EV you'd probably just be getting into a flip situation a lot.

      Maybe not that relevant you have nut-flush blocker when villain has a flush so rarely.

      Looks like a Kx, rivered 2pair or straight a lot. Think folding is probably fine. Raising is potentially ok, although would not bother vs unknown. Also if villain is good enough to fold a Kx, maybe he'll fold it just as often to 10/11 euro bluff.
