Hero lost $0.08
PF Thinking was: UTG has a tighter range (77+, broadways) so a call from the BB would be ok. Then on the flop: check, because i'd more like to actually turn the flush and let him pick up anything, then just pick up the pot by chance with a semi bluff. (up to bet of 3/4pot i think i'd have [or had?, still learing english as well :] called) Turn: when i check back, assumed he has some OC but no pair or sets, i wanted to bet here, but unfortunatley didnt. River: here i thought im too late to party and its better to not try anything, because im looking awfully weak.
So in spots like this: against a tight player
. would it be better to just 3bet pfr? and why?
. or does a plan like chatch something and let him hit anything first, make any sense
. so general whats the best play in a scenaro like this
You need to think about the hands potential,implied odds, weakness, and strength along with action and current position.

re: Poker & Hands and how to play it...
This limit. Is awful though I am there as well )It is a limit where players usually calls to showdown having nothing and not caring of anything.
In this particular situation your thoughts to bet on the turn are quite right and you should have done it. But I think to bet on the river is also ok, cause he checked twice, so that automatically means he has nothing and was not interested to win this pot. So in this situation to bet is ok even on the river. As you knew later he had exactly nothing.
About 3beting for. I don't think it is a good idea with this hand and without position. In position it would be 50/50 desicion. But without it definitely no

On such a card you need to play cautiously, sometimes it plays perfectly with Flush or Straight combinations, but sometimes there are podstawy with such a card!

In the 48 hands villain was more than active in the way of calling, calling and minbetting til raising after a sign of weakness on later streets.
Pf: defend blind, iso him
F: not a bad flop (not brilliant), Cbet
T: nice. most of the time he has not hit the flush. valuebet.
R: may be im behind, but most of the time i think im ahead. bet again. -- oops probably not this time: he can have the flush, or just lower straight, the same straight, higher straight, or just 2P or 1 pair.
After what i've seen from him so far i decided to call. Hoped to have enough of a hand but naturally he hit the flush and i was beat since the turn.
What do you think. What was Ok, what was bad?
Next thought was to plug the situation into a EV equation...

Calling Range UTG: 27.2%
Wild guessing by using the slider in equilab: Q7s first appearing (seems reasonable to me with his Vpip of 62)
55+, A2s+, K5s+, Q7s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, A7o+, K9o+, Q9o+, JTo
BB 52.85% Ad7d
BB 78.62% Ad7d
BB 86.81% Ad7d
:: EV :: Allin Call River ::
(0.868*200.5BB)+(0.132*(–62.5BB) = +165.8BB
So yeah, thats that.
What do you think, can you look at a situation like that from this point of view? Or is it completely wrong for some reason to look at the overall situation.
I still think the call wasn't good because his stats 62/12, and the fact thats his putting his stack on the line their screams flush.
On the other hand when i see the Equity on turn and river. Is it vital to make the call or may be better shove it on the river anyway?
