      I think you have to fold against his raise on the turn, I'm pretty sure he hit his flush there. I understand it's hard to let go off your hand there thou so I often call there as well to see if he's not bluffing but I don't think you can make that call on the river. I think he's got you beat more often then not, your hand only has to be good 1/3 times to make the call but I doubt you even get anywhere close to that amount. I would fold the river if not the turn I think.

      Turn is close because from his stats SB has the potential to be minraising as a bluff sometimes, you get good odds and you have position. However it's a limped pot, there are possible straights and flushes out there, your kicker is no good and i assume you've never seen a minraise before since you didn't mention any read.

      The safest way to play the hand is just to fold on the turn and prevent a guessing game on the river. If you had a better read on SB that he's bluffy you could possibly call the turn and commit to calling another bet on a blank river, but i really don't think it is worth it as it is.

      Hope it helps.
