      I was loosing at that point so was trying to get aggressive or just on tilt. I don't understand how villain called that river. Did I do anything wrong in representing a flush on river, or it's just a bad opponent and I shouldn't bluff at all at this level?

      I made up my mid to bluff river when calling the turn and the 4th flush card should help me IMO. His check on river indicating he did have concern about a flush. My bet size did not polarize my range, and he did ask for time. I didn't put him on trip As though. It looks like it's just a big hand that he would not let go and made a desperate call + bluffcatcher.

      River bluff is fine, although I think you often get called( not by AA that player can´t fold since he is some % ahead, but for example K-T high flushdraws)
      I would personally just fold turn. You´re behind very often and can´t call him down if he barrels again on the river
