[NL2-NL10] NL10 FR: A4s - river bet with nuts

      Not sure with which hand he raised me on river. I hoped for set or maybe 2nd nut flush - therefore I tried to re-raise all-in for value. Is it profitable in long term to bet this big?

      I would check/raise that dry board with the nut flushdraw and take it from there. As played on the turn depending on whether I think he's bet that turn or not I might lead out with what is likely to be both the best hand and the best draw. As played on the river I'd probably go for something like $1. It's callable by Jx for bad players and it's still small enough that people will raise other flushes. They'll have to raise bigger, which will commit them more to calling a 3bet jam.

      Hard to say without reads when he raises on the river as played. If he's a tag it's odd that he didn't bet that A turn even with his flushdraws, and yet he seems to have a hand to raise that flushing river, I'd say either he's bluffing because you bet very small or he raise/folded something like J9/99. If he's a fish who knows, it makes more sense for him to have a flush but he could very well be attacking your weak bet too.

      As for the best line, if BU really is a tag you probably won't fool him by making a smaller 3-bet it's pretty obvious you have a strong flush. So I think I like your shoving, hoping he won't find a fold with his flushes whoever he is, if he's a fish he probably won't and we'll maximize value.

      Hope it helps.
