      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 8.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.45) Q, 9, 8 (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks, MP3 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.45) 8 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, UTG2 folds, MP3 calls $0.45, BU folds.

      River: ($1.35) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60.

      Final Pot: $2.55.

      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a flush, queen high(7s 6c).
      Hero shows three of a kind, eights(5h 8d).

      MP3 wins with a flush, queen high(7s 6c).

      On the river I'm thinking, if I check - he would try to bluff me out
      with air or he actually has a better hand, which is a lose-lose for me either
      way since I can't call here.
      But if I bet here, he wouldn't dare to execute a bluff and
      would maybe even fold a weak flush or if he re-pops me here,
      I would know for sure I'm beat and have an easy fold ... ooor ?

      Hey StaticMoth,

      you did well bet pot size on the turn.

      On the turn it's best to just c/f the hand when there are 4 :spade: on the board and you have none. I don't expect him to bluff too often on this river and he will usually just check behind low flushes or some non-flush made hands.
