      Pot bet the flop but I think I'm calling the turn to and hope for the board to pair up on the river. Pretty much every draw hit... & QJ completed their straight. Very nasty turn card.

      I think flop bet is just about ok... calling turn is definitely fine.. I wouldn't raise here... you should actually call the river. I would do this because it's a weak bet and you might even gain very valuable info on his play.

      You coud bet fop more, but it isnt necessary.
      On turn I woud put it in, athough flush is possibe. His stats are so tight that there cant be many flushes that hit now. only QJ of hearts. More often he hit here his AQ, AJ with a heart.
      Riverbet is not so weak, more like milking - he has there often AxQh or AxJh. But his AF is high, so calling is an option, but I would prefer fold here.

      Hi,


      Your line is fine.

      Raise/calling the turn seems a bit spewy unless you're confident he would have raised a flushdraw on the flop, which he likely would have given his AF, so it's fine too.

      The river call is pretty marginal getting those odds, he could be blockbetting some worse hands like AK/AT or maybe QJ that beat you, making a cheap bluff on a 4-flushed board if he was ever bluffing until the river, or milking you with a flush. I'd probably end up calling if he was a reg i saw at the tables often since the showdown would tell you quite a bit about how he plays the game, but folding is fine.


      Hope it helps.
