      Is this play OK? I guessed he was on flushdraw but was not sure. Bet on the river didnt seem nessesary or should I bet?

      I'm not sure because of the pot size being in BB and your bet being in $ but I think on the flop you are giving odds to anyone with a flush draw.

      If the flop is 28 BB = 28 x $0.1 = $2.80 then betting $1 is giving him $1:$3.80
      And his chance of hitting a flush is more like 1:3 (perhaps 1:4 if he assumes he has to hit it on the turn as he should but most players overlook this)

      So if he is on the flush draw you are actually giving him the odds to call?

      Regardless of that I think I would bet again on the river. The king doesn't complete any draws and if he was holding over cards has actually given him a reason to call with a worse hand.

      The hands that beat you are: 22, 55, Tx, KK.
      - I think 22, 55, Tx would have re-raised either the flop bet or the turn bet so I think they are unlikely.
      - KK I am fairly sure would've raised at some point preflop or on the flop.

      So I think we are ahead here. Plenty of worse hands would call a decent bet. Especially since his line all along has been that of a fairly weak calling station like player.

      Preflop: Raise to $0.60 or you also could raise a bit bigger because of being out of position.
      Flop: You can bet here a bit more, near pot.
      Turn: Bet more, near pot.
      River: You can go here for check/call but also it wouldn't be wrong if you bet smallish and fold to a bigger raise.

      I don't understand why we are playing as if we are behind on the river?

      There is no point to bet in my opinion. If he missed a flush its good but since he called bets for flushdraw I tought maybe I am behind. I figure he would be folding anyway if he had only flushdraw but maybe Im wrong.

      I would bet value on the river, cc line is also fine, but he could have some Kx or hearts or just calling station and would call with any pair to your river bet.

      He should raise on the turn with trips or better hand, so you´re likely ahead and get value with your good hands.
