      In blind vs BU usually raise 4BB's since you are OOP.
      Flop: bet 0.75, even 0.80 to build the pot and make draws more expensive.
      Turn: when he min-raises he usually has a flush, but the price is very good, so you can deffo call.
      River: standard fold pending no reads on the guy.

      Hope it's ok.

      Yes no reads, btw this was rush poker.
      Because he hesitated he may have had a non A flush and might have been scared of a check-raise. Thats what I though although I could be wrong.

      I 3 bet his bet and was IP btw.
      The other option I'm thinking is even though the flush hit, he may have something else or a non-Ace flush so maybe I could re-raise allin on the turn. It seems risky but the read of him taking so long to decide...not sure what that means.

      Preflop: Raise it 4x with your good hands
      flop: Fine, perhaps a bit bigger > 0.70$
      Turn: After he raises it's either push or fold here, calling his raise and then folding on the river is just bad play IMO. He could of been raising the bare A on the turn, or even trying to protect 2pair/trips in which case if you just opt to call, the heart is also a scare card to him which you will lose value if you shoved the turn. And if he does happen to have the flush, you outs to a full house so you're not completely dead.
      River: Good, he has told a consistant story and it does actually look like a flush.

      Ship the turn you have a good hand and they are not always going to have a flush. If they have a flush you have re-draws.

      As played nice hand and good fold.

      Sounds good. With better reads against people you don't believe would raise non-flush hands in that spot you can just call the river, but a random unknown could get raise happy with any hand that has a pair and a heart or JT with a heart stuff like that, or show up with some "slowplayed" KQ/AK/AA/66 hands.


      Hope it helps.
