      Preflop: Standard

      Flop: I decide on a bet/fold line, with a strong enough bet into 3 opponents that if I do get raised I am confident I'm behind and can easily fold.

      Turn: I'm scared of the flush but also think I'm ahead of a lot of AX hands that loose villain calls with preflop so again choose a bet/fold line. Once I get called here I decide to give up but...

      River: Villain bets so small into this pot I only need to call 21.5BB to win 111.5BB, it's like he's teasing me, and I feel compelled to call.

      My instinct is that I overplayed my hand and could have (should have?) given up after villain calls the flop. What do you reckon?

      Hey K,

      After villain calls your big flop bet he can have Ax or flushdraw, sometimes a lower pair. When the flush comes in on the turn, you can no longer value bet. You bet and he calls. Now, his range is Ax and flushes generally, maybe a few times pair + flushdraw. River completes everything, easy check/fold. If turn is close and probably a check/fold, river is a lot clearer.
