It $2.20 Progressive Knockout with 10mins blind level. This is first hand of the tournament. So no reads on anyone.

I thought I should fold on river but then it's micro stakes donkaments people show with all kinds of overplayed junk. But at the same time I was 90% sure he has flush. I just couldn't fold my top set

I checked turn hoping to check-call for full house and fold on river but the fish inside me can't let it go

This river's an easy fold IMO. All the scary stuff has got there and villain is just as aware of that as you are, so I doubt he's playing worse value stuff (lower sets, 43s?) like this and I don't give the average player pool the ability to bluff like this with air that hasn't improved by the river.

One other point with this one.. the flop bet needs to be 2/3 pot since against 2 opps. If I bet less than 2/3 and someone has a flush draw and hits it, it's my own fault that I lose the hand because I gave the opp the correct odds to try to outdraw me.
