This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: Flopped Straight on a flush draw board within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; So again my opponent makes really strange bets and seems to be a real fish.
Any tips about my bets ? Should I have raised
I just take those min bet as a check. I fold, it screams made flush to me. Donk lead river looks bluffy and I faced the nuts so many times that I realized catching a bluff shove was not profitable in the long run at 2NL, they have it too often. The same way that calling a raise on turn with TPTK will not be great long term.

In real time, on the turn, when he donks a 2nd time, I raise probably as much as I think he will call. We arent raising to fold him out. We want him to call. In my opinion, he is almost certainly trying to draw out with a flush or straight draw himself. 10-J and hearts are my guess as to what he has.
When he donks river for $1.50, I fold. Something clearly changed. I wouldn't expect some sicko to bluff us here at $2 NL.
All that being said, I would raise bigger on the turn. If I thought he would call, I would shove. I think i just click "pot" and bet that.
All in all, if you folded river, NH. If you called, expect to lose alot. Maybe 1 in 10 he bluffs you? Seems very unlikely he is bluffing. He could be turning some hand into a bluff, and value owning himself like Ax-5x, but naaa I don't think so.... if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck. He has a flush IMO.
Edit: I raise bigger on the flop as well. If we can find a way to get stacks in on the turn (clean turn obv), that's kinda what I'm trying to accomplish.

Thanks for the answers. I folded my hand on the river, so I can't tell you the results. I agree with you that I should have bet bigger on the turn. Flop raise is maybe ok since he could donk with almost anything but you could argue for a bigger raise too. Kinda was slow downed by the 7 on the turn maybe because this card could damage the strengh of my straight a little bit.

I don't like raise size pre, 8 to 12 sounds better. 10 is best that I can tell. Without any extra information I think previous posts are correct and folding is just ok.

I've seen these types of wired bets as well at 2nl. There are some opponent who will donk min bet you with a strong hand trying to make you raise his donk & get money in the pot.
Some are just bluffs.
And some like here are drawing hands.
Raise more pre. Reraise big both flop & turn
Fold on the river I guess if you don't have much info on the villain. There's a flush & a house possible. He could have pocket 5s as well
