      should i have called the river re-raise since by then, flush was more likely to be held by him and i didnt have a very strong flush?

      I think that since he checked the turn, he was most likely on a draw. When the 6 :heart: hits, the only draw that was completed was the FD. I think raising his river bet is fine, but I'd only call his reraise. He's not doing it without a flush, and in this case, there are already 5 low hearts out. Chances are, if he does have a flush, he has a higher one.

      after he 3-bets river he likely has there also flush and since your 9 high flush can´t beat too many lower flushes I´d just call
