      Tough Tough Tough.

      I would bet 1/2 pot on turn to test whether villain had a flush and how strong the flush is. It is a semi bluff because you had 10 clean outs against a flush.

      If villain flat calls and check back to you on a blank river then you can still choose to turn your hand into a bluff or to check back.

      As played your check on the turn kind of encourage the villain to try a bluff on a 4-flush hand. Personally I usually don't feel like giving up like this with a top set.

      I would played hand the same way
      I think SB has there very often flush, since he has no reason to call with worse hands. i think he´d very often c/r flop with two pair or set
      And since you can´t beat flush, river fold is fine
