      I really don`t like my small bet on the river. I thought that bigger bet would reveal my hand strength :f_mad: I was quite sure villain had a flush. So what is a good bet that villain could call? Or it depends on the villain? This guy checked the nut flush on the turn. Can I exploit this info somehow?

      Very few people on micros (if there is anyone) would get away from nut flush, or pretty much from any flush... So i think you should have bet pot. But well played imo.

      i would bet 2/3 - 3/4 of pot.
      I think he still calls there. You want to get some value also from the smaller flushes and even straights so i dont like betting pot as they will usually fold then.
      But i am starting with 6max and not FR...

      EDIT: and what makes you so sure villain had a flush? Cant he have straightdraw on the flop with some pair?
