      Preflop I usually raise anyh pocket, but here I decided to check since oop and so many limpers. On the river I probably made mistake, should I bet-allin? I was assuming he has flush very often there so I let him bet.

      You must bet river here! If he doesnt have a flush you are just giving him a free showdown.

      If you think he has a flush, then he will call any bet, if he doesnt he might have 2 pair, a 9 or straight and call anyway.

      His call on the flop shows some strength and allows you to bet more on the turn. Make the pot big without scaring him. Your objective is to get him all in on the river.

      hi
      bet more on the turn after he calls flop
      if he seems passive bet on the river . he will shove with straights , flushes and trips most of the time . if you check you give him the chance to check behind with hands that have little showdown value but might call another bet didnt giving you credit .
      check raising is good if you feel he is going to bet a big % of the time

      The flop gave me so much information, either a 9 or a flushdraw. SO! I bet half of the pot on the turn because he was drawing dead(I felt that) and I didn't want him to fold flush draw because on paired board people tend to fold flush draw more often and I either wanted him to raise me with 9 and a medium kicker, because big turn bet usually gets just called with a nine Q9- hands. I wanted him to get all-in on the river because I felt he had much showdown value but he would just call a pot riverbet because the flush is not the nuts there. I hope my way of thinking is correct too.

      Depends on the read I think, if hes aggro postflop you MIGHT do this, but I never recommend checking the river here.
      If he has a flush he isnt folding to anything, even if its not the nuts since hes a ss.


      You dont want this to happen to you lol:


      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, 4. UTG posts a blind of $0.10.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, 5 folds, UTG checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) K, T, 3 (2 players)
      UTG checks, MP1 checks.

      Turn: ($0.25) A (2 players)
      UTG checks, MP1 checks.

      River: ($0.25) 9 (2 players)
      UTG checks, MP1 checks.

      Final Pot: $0.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows two pairs, aces and tens (Ac Ts)
      UTG shows a flush, ace high (Qd 2d)

      UTG wins with a flush, ace high (Qd 2d)
