      Is it worth betting again on the turn?
      Is the river call ok, what odds do I need to call here?

      Hi there, again i think you played it fine. With the possible flush and full house i think the check is fine on the turn. Then on the river i'd call to, although i probably wouldn't like it, you are getting 5/1 which i think is good enough. Will be interested to see what the judge says though.

      Hi,


      If he's bad bet/folding the turn again for value is fine, he'll call again with any Ax and broadways with a gutshot with or without a heart, as well as any pocket pair with a heart that he peeled the flop with.

      If he's some kind of tag then he'll fold a worse Ax to another bet and the rest of his range already beat you when the flush gets there, so it's usually a c/f.

      As played since you don't know him looking him up is fine on the river, it's really cheap and you never know he might be "valuebetting" a worse Ax or throwing in a senseless bet with 77 for no good reason.


      Hope it helps.
