      Final Pot: $18.78.

      No read on Villain.
      * I was thinking about raising preflop as I would do quite often with this hand. But I don't think it is big mistake to see flop without initiative but in position. Correct?

      * I floated on flop, because I don't know what I would represent with a raise. I still have my FD and two overs.

      * I decided to bluff raise K as a scare card, which is probably not that good. But it build the pot somehow for a case I hit the flush and gives me some clue about Villain hand. Correct?

      * River played itself. Value betting my flush, kinda surprised when reraised, but calling to see his flush maybe :-) I do not think I can 4bet, because only better hands will call.

      What do you think?
      Thanks

      I´d raise pf, since QTs is strong enough hand against limp and you take pot often down pf or postlfop
      I´d raise flop, since you can hold there any two card what you can raise for value and against random hand you have enough equity
      Raising turn is ok.
      Likely bet/call river is ok, although he can c/r also with lower flushes that he´d call shove
