      On a paired turn that's raised, even though I make my flush I should slow down.
      On the river a c/c may be better since if im raised by a 140bb stack, I probably shouldn't call.

      This is a tough spot but I think anything over about half pot I should fold on the river.

      Hi,


      I think you played it fine, villain is obviously bad and we have no reason to believe he's incapable of playing a worse flush like that.

      On the river if you think he would bet a flush when checked to then check/calling is fine, otherwise I prefer you donking out to make sure those hands pay off a value bet. I think you can fold if villain makes a big raise, but i'm not folding to the minraise when in doubt, it's just a worse mistake if he ever does that with a flush than paying him off when he has a boat.


      Hope it helps.
