      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($15.70)
      UTG+1 ($63.40)
      CO ($49.25)
      BTN ($40.90)
      SB ($53.25)
      Hero (BB) ($64.95)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 6 players) Hero is BB J:spade: 5:spade:
      UTG calls $0.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.50, SB calls $0.25, Hero checks

      Flop: 4:spade: 8:spade: 2:diamond: ($2, 4 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero calls $2, UTG calls $2, BTN calls $2

      Turn: 4:heart: ($10, 4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN checks

      River: K:spade: ($10, 4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, 2 folds, SB raises to $19, Hero folds

      Villain is 31/11/2.6/12

      flop: I called because those 2 behind me are huge fishs and at least one of them would call giving me enough implied odds. I don't like raise on that flop because SB would bet only good hands there, like TPGK, 2 pairs, FD and we would probably end up all in if I raise, what would leave me like 33% odds (and I am running way below EV so I dont like all in situations :D )

      turn:I accept free card

      river:I am not sure why I bet there 3$, I am not gay betting in those situations, probably multitabling effect :D .SB check/raised me. He can do that with slowplayed boat and Flush. I have to be there ahead for 33% to make that call EV+, but because of his low WTSD I am not sure am I ever ahead in that situation. It looks like he was waiting for me to hit that flush and to pay off. Hardly he would c/r with worser flush. Fold is OK?

      Might as well fold on the flop if you think somebody is in with higher spades. Also you didnt have proper pot odds to call the $2 with a flush draw, so you were just asking to lose money that hand..

      When he raised 19 how do you know he hit a flush and not a full house?

      Bet higher river and fold to a big raise.

      Yeah it seems like he has a FH because pot size bet flop, check turn (no sense to protect flop and not protect turn) and then c/r river.

      I have 2 passive fish behind me with high WTSD so I had enough implied odds.

      I said that he hit flush or full house (boat).

      IMO u check call river.
      Because you most not likely to get value in a four way pot vs worst hands if you bet.
      and someone in position might try to pick it up with worse hands.

      and i agree with the call on flop.

      Well since u got somewhat read on him it seems like a good fold, but the way sb played makes no seance to me , he bet 4 bb flop

      check turn ,

      if he wanna get value for a full house he should bet here since he would most likely get called from drawing hands, then he is face with a bet for 6 BB

      when there is a flush on Bord and he C/R 38 BB .

      If he is really good i said he bluffed there since your river bet is weak.
      because u would raised any 2p+ flop.

      but since the explanation u gave he is not the best. So its probably better to fold.
