      You had nearly the absolute nuts on the turn (only 46 has you done) and were still way in front of the BB's likely range by the river, especially for a half pot bet.

      Possibly I can find a slow play call on the turn but on the river if I check to him I am ignoring the flush scare card and check-raising to ~$1.25. I want a call from Kx which is what the BB has almost for sure. Villain has played a protection line the whole way through to keep you off that flush and unfortunately it was an aweful card for you as he was likely scared by it, but still, no reason to see if he wont call a re-raise. Cost you nothing to try.

      There is no way known the villain has the flush unless the villain is a complete donkey who likes to not only chase flushes, but purposely pay too much while doing it. Only thing to be scared of is FH / 4oak.

      +1!

      You definetly have to fold to the flop potsize bet. You just have 4 outs and this 4 outs aren't the nuts. So please fold a gutshot straight draw next time.

      I know it's hard to fold for a bet which is "just" 12 cent but it's a potsize bet.
