It would make it easier to range villains if you took notes so you could get some basic reads on them

I'd fold this preflop. A4o is going to be dominated so often and you're going to be OOP multiway. I'd be much more inclined to call or even squeeze with A4s rather than A4o.

Calling the flop is reasonable, but now you're playing a guessing game. A big reason for calling this flop bet is that you have the nut backdoor flush draw. I also think you played the turn and river fine.

Judging by the villain's bet sizing, he seems to have a hand he likes and probably wouldn't be too willing to fold too quickly, so I don't really see any reason to turn your hand into a bluff on the flop or turn.

Chances are if you check the river, it will just check through, so betting small for value seems like your best play.

not just nut-flush-draw, but also 5 OTT will give u double-gutter, and 6/2 will give u gutter:p
