      Villain is unknown but looks fishy from the few hands I have.

      PRF: Standard.
      Flop: Yey! Great draw vs great potential buyer.
      Turn: I bet due to the combo draw to build up the pot but I think here is my mistake. If xe's actually a fish we don't have much fold equity in general AND we are out of position AND the board paired, so not all my outs are clean. If xe's a regular my implied odds are not good to start with for the previous reasons.
      River: Well, lucky me, at least I got the flush but ta-da-da xe plays back! I generally fold here especially against reg, but the min-raise despite being deep made me think of some misplayed 9x or lower flush, so I call for odds.

      I like betting turn smaller as a kind of blocker bet vs fish.

      Checking turn isn't great because you can't deal well with a bet that's bigger than half pot.

      River sucks but no way you are folding with those odds. Unless you have a lot of sample on him where he is ultra passive.

      Well played in total.
