      Very tough one.

      As played I think I am shoving the turn to protect, and being very upset at myself for putting my stack at risk with QJs. The flop-reraise being so big kind of committed us given how wet the board is.

      I think flop I am re-raising to $1.95 to make him call a pot-size raise with his 1 card flush draw and try to take the pot down right there by representing the flush myself (double the bet + pot = $1.95, leaves villain calling $1.55, which is the pot size after he bet).

      On the turn pot would theen be $3.80. I am betting about 2/3 ($2.30) here, both to protect and to take a free showdown.

      On the river I check behind.

      Considering he limped/called preflop, I would be inclined to raise on the flop, but only 3.5x his bet. I'd bet/fold turn.

      Well played! I think there is no reason to blow up the pot on the turn here by bet/folding when youre in position and can so easily check behind. As Jaissica mentioned, raising flop a little less is a good idea - a big overbet is nearly never a good thing, so I'd raise it somewhere between 1.6 and 2, but I would still not bet/fold the turn since the pot is big already and you can so easily check behind against a passive guy who probably wont bet/bluff the river so often and thus put you in a difficult river spot.

      so NH :)

      I raise 1.40 flop, bet turn and check behind river as a standard.

      Best regards,
