      Your line should include folds or raises. Calling is never good! You do not have the best hand or any hand with much showdown value at all! If he has even a pair of 4s and you're just calling him down, you're beat. He could be triple barrel bluffing with hands that beat you, as well as triple barrel valuebetting. You're not going to win this pot just going to showdown, so either fold it or raise to get him off his hand. I'd personally go for a raise, but it depends on the player / gameflow etc.

      I am raising the flop or just folding and if you decided to raise and he Calls then give up on turn & river (Check/Fold).

      Best regards,

      I also prefer to semibluffraise the flop against his small bet since you can't expect much more value if you hit your onecard flush.

      I´d prefer raise on the flop, becaus eyou have there good fold equity and you´re sometimes ahead and you don´t have to catch often club, K or A to witn the hand
