All insites will be greatly apreciated guys.
This is the hardest to lay down ever, and will depend on your knowledge of his play (checkraiser,drawer bluffer, tight), and when you suspect he hit the flush. (flop, river). Try to match up the timing to his style, and try to make the best read you can.
Do not get used to paying them off just so you can know. Unfortunately, this will lose you alot of chips. I talk from experience b/c I did this alot when I started.
