      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).
      BB shows a flush, queen high(9 6).

      BB wins with a flush, queen high(9 6).

      guess I should have just chcked behind... I couldnt believe that someone would call two potsize bets with just a flush draw, so I wanted to make him pay with his top pair hands.

      Hi,


      Looks ok to me, again without reads it's impossible to really optimize your line. Maybe he folds all the Qx hands when you pot the river on the flushing card, maybe he folds none of them. Maybe he'd have raised at some point before with a flushdraw, maybe not. Maybe he donks out the river when he hit the flush, maybe not.

      When in doubt everything from checking back the river to jamming it is acceptable, you can even bet/fold like $1.7 to get Qx hands to call for sure and expects to be beat often enough when you get check/shoved on on that card that you can fold even getting incredible odds.


      Hope it helps.
