Villain 3 hands – has won just big

His small CB suggests he has a draw? Maybe AK

He would not bet on the river with A5 I think? People should be scared of flushes right? Also he did not go AI on river – I think he wanted me to call.

My turn bet should have been bigger imo – around 52 cents? After that if he bets the river I can easily fold, now I’m not sure. He could have read me weak.

Bet bigger on the turn. River is close but i'd probably just fold. When players donk bet the river at the micros they almost always have it.

Bird has nailed this one. On the turn, bet at least half pot. It's a value bet that can get value from worse, but also prevents you from being bluffed, as villain will be worried you have the flush. You still have outs if villain has a flush himself, and you want to get villain's stack in on the river if you boat up. As played, the big river lead reps the effective nuts, if not the actual nuts, and you should fold. As a general rule, river donks are never bluffs. On this board, villain would be crazy to bet with two pairs. At worst he has a straight with 76, but usually he has a flush.
