with the stack sizes, I'm assuming this is very, very early in a tournament.

When your pot-sized bet gets called on the flop, while having a monster draw (1 out to a royal and 8 more to flush), you need to figure that you are behind and that your opponent has paired something on the board. No problems with that bet, as it allows you to see where you are in the pot.... 9 outs to flush, but more than likely, you're behind a pair.

With them checking after you missed the turn, especially this early, you really should have checked and saw the river for free. Early in a tourney, you only want to put chips into the pot if you don't have to... when you are ahead (and with the flop call, they will almost always have a pair).

When the river misses, you have two options. Check, as you did.. which IMO is the correct play early in a tourney. Or fire another bullet at it (but if they have an A like they did.... you'll get called and lose).

The most surprising play was actually from your opponent, as they should have value bet the river with top pair.

2nd hand.

There are 5 people in seeing the flop and you hit bottom pair on a board with a flush draw. You still have over 6BB in chips left and if you push and get called, you are going to get called by the flush draw (which hits on the turn), an over-pair, or an open-ended straight.
With that many in, even if you hit the gutshot straight, it's probably going to lose to a higher straight and if a club comes, even if you hit trip 5's, you'll lose.

I'd have folded and gotten my chips into a better spot.
