      i found his river bet really weak and thought that he could have a weak flush or just an ace( which is useless) so i decided to shove it in to represent a good flush.

      I love the play. It's strong, it's agressive, and most importantly, against a resonable opponent (thinking or non thinking player), it'll work (assuming their flush is weaker than Q High).

      If I was our Villian, I'd be worried that you may have had K-K with the K of spades.

      Let me guess, 3-3 with the 3 of spades ;P? Or some fish that just couldn't fold his aces??

      It's probably a pot odds thing again. Your opponent has to pay $2.47 to see a pot of $8.94, giving him pot odds of 3.6:1, so he's feels pretty much priced in to call even if he doesn't have a strong flush (which seems quite likely).

      With the ace of spades showing, it's less likely that you're holding a spade that would've looked up his donkey bet. I would've thought he had trips with a weak spade or similar. Shows how weak my reads are.

      @TedKell, highlight the blank space under results follow for their hands.

      Ther's one thing you forgot. Don't bluff a fish!

      FLOP: He could be on trips, smaller A, or saome kind of JJ TT hand, trying to push you of if you're on draw. You could rerase him here. I would probably go broke here if he ships it because you're ahead of all one pair hands except 33 and 44, but I'm not sure if this is wright.

      TURN: You could still be ahead so betting again sounds good, maybe just calling his bet, but I'm not going broke any more.

      RIVER: There's no hand you can beat any more, so I think checking or folding is here only option.

      This...

      As played I'm calling the river. We might be good against a weaker ace (his small bet makes a good flush unlikely).

      Other then that... raise the flop to ~$2.1. You have to protect your hand really...

      although they bets small they also tend to call raises, since they doesn´t like to get bluffed
      Since you have showdown value, call him down if you think he might bet there with worse hands than flush
