      Pre and hand till river seems totally fine. Strange for such a player to raise that river card, because at best he can have J high flush, but only real hands that got you beat are like one combo of AA and three combos of QQ, but I see these hands cbetting flop.
      I think - call against him, because he doesn't seem like crazy person and I can't really have idea how the hell he could be raising worse hands here. Sucks to see J high flush then, but his UTG raising range can't include many Js, so I like to play this on safe side.

      With those stats I'm not 3betting him on the river because anything but a full house or better will not call, let alone shove. The rest of the hand looks fine to me..

      Thanks guys, now you say it like that, I guess the call on the river would of been a much better option. It was the worst river card for me in this situation, I actually had him on A,Q the way the hand panned out.

      Obviously I was wrong and he did indeed flip QQ. I was having a really bad session of coolers as well, FH vs FH etc. I see this as more of a mistake on my part than a cooler though after hearing your views.

      Thanks again :)

      If he's a fish it's okay but usually 14/12 players will be regs. On the flop they might check behind a flushdraw but they're more likely to bet them, and on the river they usually need a good flush at least to raise you (most of which you have blocked with your high spades), they're not turning a random pair into a bluff. So actually even tho QQ/AA are only 4 combos, I think it's more likely he checked back the flop with top set than for him to be bluffing or valueraising a J-high flush.

      So I agree with the river call instead of 3-betting.

      Hope it helps.
