Villain is unknown... I just want some opinions on my river bet...
here is how I was thinking on flop I have flush draw and I bet he raise me ... I don't want to give up cause it's a min raise... if he betted more I would...
on turn I hit my ace high flush... and bet half pot again... he calls and now I know he have a strong hand (set, straight or a lower flush) when river came and I see board doesn't pair and that I have best hand I bet pot size in order him to think I don't want him to call... good thing he did with his set...

does this make any sense?

now when I think of it... I'm little surprised he did called my river bet with all that straight and flush possibility...
guess it's hard to fold top set

I like how you played it, i think at 2NL vs a random player you should value bet big every time you get the chance.

Nice hand, well played.

We have so much equity on the flop even against better since we hold the nutdraw that we can't fold and should actually even think about getting more money in OTF sometimes. However, coming over the top on a coordinated board at stakes where people do not like to fold hands and given that you have position I prefer calling too.
