      If I wasn't so confused by this river bet, I'd think it was a clear fold. It just doesn't look like a trips valuebet to me, but more like the busted flushdraw buying the pot... or is my imagination getting the better of me too many times for a call to be +ev here?

      Flop bet higher... 4.8-5$ please, then its very easy fold to a c/r.
      I mentioned earlier that in another hand that a flop bet like this will induce raises, especially on this limit.

      River very tough but folding is alright I think, situation would be easier if flop would be bet higher since he cannot c/r with flush draw then or with the Q.

      I think this board is not terrible to check back especially when player is aggressive
      You can b/f turn, which imo is ok line and then hope for free showdown
      If you check back then I´d call river bet, since I think he is bluffing there enough with busted flushdraws. But if you are not sure about your read, fold is also ok.
