      Should have reraised flop IMO. Than bet turn and shove river.

      Originally I wanted to reraise on the flop, but I did not want to scare the opponent. Then on the turn I checked in the hope that he will bet. And on the river I just shoved to get paid off by a flush. (I didn't like the heart on the river, because I represented a flushdraw from the beginning)

      Hi,

      There you go =)

      You don't want to scary him but he probably won't fold Qx to just the raise, if he has a flushdraw he'll either call in position or 3bet you which is exactly what you want. If he has nothing well he'll fold, but since you have no guarantee that he would continue to bluff with air anyway it's not like you'd lose anything really.


      Hope it helps.
