      Not sure if this is a leak or not but it seems that I tend to give away an awful lot of $$ when I get the straight on a flushing board. What kind of stats do I need to see to justify a fold on my end here?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.76 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:spade: , Q:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $0.30, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.30, MP3 calls $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1.25) J:heart: , K:heart: , Q:club: (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.80, MP3 calls $0.80, 2 folds.

      Turn: ($2.85) T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.85, Hero calls $2.85.

      River: ($8.55) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.90, MP3 raises to $6.37 (All-In), Hero calls $0.47.

      Final Pot: $21.29

      Well when a loose passive 31/3/1.1 guy starts potting on a flushing turn into you this is already a pretty good sign that you might not be good. Since he could also have Ax I'm probably calling the turn bet too as I don't expect him to shove the river with a bare A.

      I'm not open-shoving the river however, if you're going to do that it means you assign him a range that you can profitably go broke against on the river, so some kind of two pair hands mixed with some pair+heart combo, with a few Ax and rare flushes, in which case you're better off stacking those hands right on the turn instead of waiting the river. This is a pretty standard check/fold for me on the river once I get there like you did.

      Hope it helps.
