Size seems fine, I'd expect to get a lot of calls, especially since he's limp/calling turn. Can barrel Turn as well tho checking probably fine too.

Re: Betting Decision on Khigh Flush (2NL)

I think the river size is fine. Any river raise might commit you to calling a 3-bet so you're just going to have to lose to the boat or ace high flush.

Villain honestly is folding an awful lot on the river to ANY size. You look like you gave up on the turn, so villain would bet just about everything here, trying to take it down. He won't want to let you check back for free on his value hands, and if neither of you have anything he's rather you fold.

A raise on the river scare card implies a LOT of strength. You might get a loose call from AT, a random 6 might call, and JT of spades will look you up, and you want to charge them a good price.

There is an argument to be made that you should have barrelled the turn, though. You picked up 4 river outs. If you can get a pair to fold at that point, good. If he stays and you hit, it is easier to get a value call on the river.

Villain clearly has very weak show down value (or air) so I'd pitch the bet smaller to 0.45-0.55$. Betting bigger than the pot makes villains fold decision easier.

I know maximizing value from loose calls favors a bigger bet but what's the point in reading your opponents hand strength - which they are giving away by very clear bet sizing tells - if you aren't going to put them in an awkward decision.

When we do hit the flush, we want to get paid off. If I was playing this hand. I would try to build this pot up by continuing to fire away on the turn. I think when we check the turn and 3bet the river I think we playing our hands a bit face up. The pot is .57 after he makes his bet. I think the size is fine. I'm not too sure if anything changes if we shove or pot. Thoughts?
