      Results follow:

      my small bet on flop is just to get a cheap turncard, when I hit top pair on turn (with flushdraw) I bet for value.

      Hit my flush on river and push all in. is this okey, even with a paired board. Hope my opponent is holding a weaker flush. Or should I only call because the risk of he beeing on a full house or quads?

      I'd pot the flush to build the pot for when i hit so i can get paid off big. As played i'd pot the turn too, it's a clear valuebet with top pair by then. As played i'd also bet bigger on the river, since his hand looks like a flushdraw or 7x up to the river and we're gonna have a hard time getting 7x to call another bet anyway.

      When he raises hard to tell, if he's a fish shoving is probably fine he'll call it off with worse flushes, so even if he sometimes shows a boat it's not that bad. If you've seen him around multi-tabling or he looks like a reg in any way it becomes a lot more likely he was just slowplaying a lock on the flop like 22/77, because these players usually won't c/c draws all the way, so just calling the raise is probably better barring a read that he's horrible.

      Hope it helps.
