      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5:diamond: , 4:diamond:
      UTG1 calls $0.04, UTG2 calls $0.04, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.04, BU calls $0.04, SB calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.24) 3:heart: , 7:heart: , 6:spade: (6 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.08, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.28, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.80) 5:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, BB calls $0.60.

      River: ($2.00) Q:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      I figured he was chasing a flush draw and caught it, was I right to check-behind on the river? I assumed since he called the flop and turn, he'd call any bet on the river too.

      Final Pot: $2.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, seven high (5d 4d)
      BB shows a flush, queen high (8h 6h)

      BB wins with a flush, queen high (8h 6h)

      Preflop: I do not like to limp with such hands.
      Otherwise, well played.

      I prefer to small bet/fold this river, because he might call with worse hands (people are so bad on these limits.. :D ), but will only raise the flush. Therefor a bet/fold gives you maximum value, I think. It's not as obvious as you think that he's chasing the flush... don't overestimate the opponents ;)

      I like limping these hands btw :P With one limper it's raiseable, but with so many it just creates a big multiway pot and those are ugly.
