      i know i played it bad... at least the last call. But i was little steammy... verry unlucky river actually. the only card in the whole damn deck to f**k things up that badly.

      How should i play it next time? Check river and call a small bet...
      check and fold against a big bet? Or bet like i did and fold against this huge reraise?

      I think it is played ok. I like to checkraise the river all-in, which gives him the opportunity to check behind some hands with showdownvalue, that are scared of the J pairing. But still I think he'll bet the river with TT and probably A8 K8 and of course a made flush.
      Lead/calling it off is fine as well. You cannot fold the nutflush on the river just because the board paired, given this action, that doesn't really indicate him having hit a set on either flop or turn. His turnbet is very atypical for a Set and he misplayed the turn very badly by letting you draw cheaply.

      Played fine imo.

      Bet River is best here, but you should be more.
      With the Ace high Flush, there is no way, you could fold this.
