      Hi Mugge88!

      I would slow down on the river and play check/call because this way you get the maximum out of worse hands (busted draws) and lose the minimum against better hands. The board is really dangerous. Also check/fold is a possibility here if he bets too big on the river. But that depends on the situation at the table and on the opponent.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I would bet less on river. maybe something like 0,40$. because any jack beats you and he's probably too afraid the flush to raise if he has jack. I think he won't call your river bet with any weaker hand
