      Should I slow down any when the 3rd flush card hits, or was the turn bet OK?

      Called the min-bet preflop for set value since I was already Big Blind. I then figured the pot odds were too good to fold to the min-bets through the hand. I'd likely have called one more min-bet on the river too, but folded to anything else. OK? Or should I have dumped it earlier?
