      call flop is ok? on the turn he bet under 1/2 pot so I thought he continues his bluff from flop or he had Ax and this small bet indication weakness.

      That's tough. Flop check/raising range into the pfa + the BB with whom he's 200bb deep has got to be very strong, i don't even think he's raising TPTK there, probably only KhXh/55/22 unless he somehow flats utg raises preflop out of position with baby aces like A5s. So you immediately have a bluff catcher.

      His turn bet doesn't really define his range any better, he could do that with anything he raised on the flop, either to continue a bluff cheaply or to set up a river shove with a set (he doesn't need to bet more to get all your stack in by the river). Although probably less often with flushdraws since some people will give up when you call the flop.

      The river is a 5 which makes it even less likely he has a set or two pairs in that spot, still you won't see many guys willing to play a busted flushdraw like that on all streets at nl50, and with the Ah on board he can't have many of those to begin with either. Which would probably force you to fold at that point.

      Overall since all the cards came about as good as they could for you on the turn and the river, if you call the flop you probably have to call him down on that board. Which is why you're better off just bet/folding that flop without specific reads once he shows such strength at these stakes, it's not worth the calldown most of the time.

      Hope it helps.
