      Hi,


      Nothing, it just shows you of easier it is to play in position than to play out of position.

      The turn card is just plain horrible for your hand since he could have 65/hearts/Qx, the only stuff you beat would be marginal (pocket)pairs that peeled the flop, and probably won't call a bet on the turn unless maybe they also have a heart draw. Either way it's way too thin a range to valuebet against considering how many hands actually beat you now.

      And on the river villain could still have flushes while it's hard for you to have one, which means it's risky for you to turn your hand into a bluff and it's not so risky for him. Again, position is the nuts.


      Hope it helps.
