      Hero wins with a straight, ace high (Kd Ah)

      flop : he checked, hes a calling station, i decided to raise, cause i have many outs.
      turn : possible flush completed, but he checked (i suppose if he had a flush he would have bet) i bet full size, in case he just wants to see all cards :)
      river : now every ace splits pot, if he put me all in, i would be thinking about folding (underplayed flush), but he checked, i decided to shove for value.

      is my play ok ?

      against a calling station play is ok, but i dont agree with turn play. On turn betting full pot shows a lot of strength, he could believe you hit a flush. Against calling station i had bet half pot. River again, you should bet half pot i think.

      Why? They're called calling stations for a reason... cause they're calling everything regardless of board textures & bet sizes. These are the kind of players you want to make large valuebets against on turn & river cause if they'll call a 2/3-3/4 pot bet they'll most likely call a pot bet to.

      I'm not sure that guy wouldn't just c/c even a turned flush all the way, i've seen those guys check behind the nuts so.. But it's indeed less likely when he doesn't bet out himself, and there are so many 2 pairs combos out there that he will never fold even to a shove, i like your play.

      Hope it helps.
