      I had a good read. I called till river for flush, then with J I realized that I probably have the best hand (beating AT,KT,QT or bluff), so I called.

      As long as you realise you don't have pot odds to call flop & river for that flush alone it's ok. I guess you do have decent implied odds since you've got position. Althou... if the flush completes I doubt you're gonna be getting a lot more value from your hand.

      You can play your hand a whole lot stronger imo, I wouldn't mind sticking it on the flop straigth away with nuts flush draw + 2 overcards.

      As played: of course you have to call the river. That's a no brainer.

      You have a monster draw. Reraise him and try to put it all-in on the flop. You have such fold equity.
