      turn play, when the flush hits maybe its better to check/call turn and river, cuz if he raises turn im in very ugly spot oop.
      How played, river should be check/call or bet/fold?
      bet/call was big mistake, i know

      I think betting a little more on the flop, and checking turn is smarter, to control the size of the pot. This also induces bluffs, and you can easily call a small river bet, instead of betting so much on turn and river.

      problem with b/f river is that he can shove there worse hands, like lower sets or two pair hands, so imo you shouldn´t b/f river
      Like your bet on the turn, if flushdraw completes, then villains don´t have that every time, so you can easily bet for value and evaluate if get raised
      River: if you don´t want to b/c, then c/c for bluff induce and let him valuebet with worse hands
