      Main question is about the river. Thought about betting for value, but I think no worse hands would call me. Was it right?

      Bet more flop, I think 0.8-0.9$ would be correct. Check behind river.

      Hello,

      Flop: Pretty ugly board for us, for the min-donk reason I would likely try to raise him up but in other view I don't really want to build up the pot because of the board, it's kinda ugly, if we hit your flush then we will very often have a hard decision while he could still have a better flush. So I don't mind taking the odds and just Call and reevaluate turn.
      Turn: Check behind.

      As played
      River: Check behind.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Hello!

      I think you're only building up the pot for better hands. Since you have position, I would reraise 3xbet on flop, but then take the check/call line depending on his bet size.
