The flop comes k-q-6 with two hearts on the board. I check, utg two bets out 350 middle position calls the original raiser folds and i decide to call with my flush draw. O the turn the 8 of hearts hit the board i checked my flush utg2 checks middle position bets out 1000 in a 1600 chips in the pot. I decide too play my flush very tricky and call utg2 decides too fold. On the river the king comes out there is 2600 in the pot so i decide too bet 1000 the player in middle position decides too raise 6000 im face with a very difficult decision early in this tournament how would u have played this hand differently and would u have called or folded?
If you check call turn , check call the river . This makes you look very weak and your allowing villain to bet with a range that you actually beat, while saving chips when your behind.
Don't really like your line here check/call turn , then donk the river small.
To me this looks like a scared blocker bet and villain can put us to a difficult decision.
With two players in the hand im betting the flush on the turn
1 for value
2 to protect the hand
river I check call or bet bigger / fold to raise
