      Should you what?

      But i think you played this hand fine. I wouldn't raise on the end because he showed strength when the flush hit and if he had trips he'd now have a full house (and he could have made a full house from two pair too)

      A hand like trips or two pair could conceivably play the same line too, because his reraise when the third flush card comes could then be to stop you drawing to a four flush.

      Not much you could do there, next time you should't include results because the judge could be influenced!

      as many have said, a raise on the turn is a sign of a strong hand and I guess you couldn'T really fold a straight against SB. His range can be huge.

      You played it fine imo.

      Bet more on the flop. Go for pot. Why? Because SB will limp almost any hand he has there on NL2. When SB goes limp pre, check flop I bet from BB regardless of my hole cards. But if you minbet he'll call too much. Just pot it. Some would disagree with this advice but for me it has worked very well so far.

      As played I guess you can't fold to his raise on the turn as you have a flush redraw and on the river he might play trips the same way. Haven't looked at the results but guessing from previous comments you didn't have the best hand in the end.

      he can raise turn worse hands than straight and I´d also call him down
