      Bad call there, I did observe only the flushdraw possibility, but after the hand I've realized how many hands beat me on the river.

      I would bet/fold on the river, there are worse hands hands that would possibly call but not bet such as top pairs or worse two pairs, to a raise you would know your beat and easily fold.

      Check/fold is also a possible line but i think it misses out on value against alot of the players at NL5

      Pre-flop: fold imo. Complete suited broadways is ok, but JTo isn't exactly brilliant.

      Flop: ok

      Turn: ok

      River: The 9 is really really bad card. You could make a small blockbet and fold to a raise but I think check/fold is probably better here. As played, he's completely overshoving the river... you can NEVER call here with less the a flush imo.

      pf, flop and turn are fine.
      River you can go c/c, although I´d like more betting 1 and folding to shove.
      When you face overshove then he likely has there flush and you´re beat.
