      I'd bet more on the flop, about 0.40 or even 0.45 on the flop and check the turn because of the possible flush.If he bets the turn I'd probably call it and hope the board pairs, if it doesn't im not calling alot on the river.

      Unless you know him to be a maniac, this hand screams "I have a flush". Id call the turn and check fold the river.

      If you call the turn, you should know there's a good chance to have to call a sizeable bet at the river, especially on a suited board.
      What I think you should have done was bet pot on the flop (50c instead of 35c) to protect against a flush draw.
      The rest, I'd call those bets as well at this limit, too many people playing inferior hands like he did at that level, even if I wouldn't play any hand inferior to yours like that. You get the odds for the call with his half potsize bet at NL10 I think.

      Hi rubysilesia!

      I would bet potsize on the flop and bet/call the turn. If he has the flush you still have 10 outs on the river. In this case I would fold the river because he showed strength on the turn and now makes a half potsize valuebet.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I agree with all. I knew that I made a mistake on the flop with the size of bet. With 4 opponents it's very likely that someone holds a flush draw.
