      I decided to call preflop OOP since we were both deep. On the river flush is possible and also a straight.
      Question being of course how to play the river? Check/call , check/raise , donk?
      As played , s my 4bet after his raise on the river too strong and i should rather flat call him ?

      I think Bet/Raise is the right play here. More often he got Q (with which he would go broke having straight) than higher flush that requires 2 specific cards.

      Hi undercover82!

      I also think that bet/raise on the river is the best line here. While looking at his stats it seems that he is quite loose and his high wts indicates that he even goes to the showdown with weaker hands. As rubysilesia already mentioned: He often raises with a Q. Try to get the meximum value with your flush. If he has a higher flush: so be it.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I'm curious here if villain had pushed on river to your bet/raise, would you have called?

      I really would be at a total loss if he did , and i am happy he didnt :) .With so much money in the pot i would have to win in like 25% of the cases.But i am not sure if he will ever push there with just a straight , and a lower flush is almost impossible.
