      Flop: I think you bet way too small. Don't forget you are deep and you should be wanting to build up the pot as much as possible. I'm betting 60cents here.

      Turn: This is a turn card which brings many new draws. I would just pot it here. Your perceived range should contain many flush draws in them so he is probably going to be defending wider. A loose aggressive player will often call a 2nd pair hand again on this turn card.

      River: This is kind of tough - He represents the flush but the question is whether he is capable of showing up with bluffs in this situation or not.

      Given that we don't have too strong reads here, I think we can call the stronger hands in our range such as sets and two pairs, and fold the weaker hands. He could certainly have some busted spade draw or QT
