      Hi, was my line in this hand correct, or would you suggest another line - on flop as well as turn? Thanks

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9, 9.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BU calls $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.3) 4, 8, 6 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.24, BU folds, SB calls $1.24.

      Turn: ($3.78) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($3.78) J (2 players)
      SB bets $3.60, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.78.

      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
