      The 5x BB instead of 4xBB preflop raise was just a missclick, so don't mind that. I made a bad call on the river, but other than that, should I fold the turn?

      Hi Timor83!

      I would bet more on the flop (~$5) and play the turn bet (~$10)/fold. Since you both are deepstacked it can become expensive to find out whether he really has the flush.

      Good luck at the tables!
