      my standard line is lead out flop or c/r, he´d often call with worse hands and you can get your money all-in on the river
      turn and river are fine
      strange he just calls with A high flush.

      i don't understand the big bet on the river, worse hands will certainly fold and better ones will raise

      Bet all streets unless another spades drops. If he has a spade he will call streets and if he beats you on river it will be because of bad luck, not bad play.

      By slowplaying you:
      - Lose money if he has a worse hand than yours.
      - Lose money if he's on a draw. If he misses on river, he won't call.
      - Allow him to hit his hand for cheap.

      in this case i would disagree considering the probabilies. where the probability of him having a better hand on the river is very low i would favour subtle approach over agressive approach of extracting value.

      and win what 2$? i prefer to take the chance and trap for a bigger reward. of course it can backfire but in the long run ill win more money imho. this guys stats said he was a weak player so i took a calculated risk.
