      I bet bigger on turn - $0.5 - your betsizing is sort of irrelevant to wether he calls at this limit imo - so get value whilst you can.

      There is boat out and him suddenly deciding to shove worse flushes on the river is hard to put him on doing - esp when you bet pot. Think it comes down to instinct - I might be able to find a fold since NL5 is like the nittiest limit imo.

      Even if it's possible SB is some reg who always has a pocket pair I wouldn't check back the flop. Most of his hands can't stand 2 barrels and sometimes he'll just not be willing to fight for that small pot. Also, you don't want to pot to be tiny if you make your flush along that way.

      Turn obviously bet bigger and just hope he has something to call with.

      River is still an easy valuebet tho I probably wouldn't bet pot, nothing in villain's line shows any strength whatsoever so far. Around $0.8 would be my default. When he check/shoves I'd really like to know whether he's a reg or not, if he is we're always beat by some slowplayed boat or nut flush, if he's not I'd probably call it off and expect to see some worse flushes as well as a random spazz bluff once in a while.

      Hope it helps.
