      I didnt find much FE on this flop and i just checked , but after his check behind and with a flush draw on turn i decided to semibluff it. What do i do on the river though ?

      Hi undercover82!

      I would make a continuation bet here. The board is paired and your opponent often missed the flop. If he has a pocket pair he might call a bet on the flop. On the turn I would fire a second barrel or play check/raise if it is likely that your opponent tries to float you. As played I like the semibluff on the turn and bet/call on the river should be fine, too.

      Good luck at the tables!
