I would also consider check-raising the flop; it's very coordinated, and there are many hands and draws that can call including AJ/AQ/AK. This lets you potentially build up a pot with high equity and commit your opponent so it will be tougher for him to get away later in the hand
re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Value from straight and flush
It is kind of ok to just check-call flop, because you have a redraw to a flush. Even so there are many cards, that can kill the action, so like Collin Moshman I lean towards going for a check-raise to start building the pot as fast as possible. And if I did check-call flop, I am certainly check-raising turn.
I dont really see the point in this particular line, where you check-call twice and then donk overbet shove the river. I guess, it can look like a bluff, but there are certainly river cards, you dont want to see like another spade, a ten or anything pairing the board. So this is a bit to much slowplay for me. Given his stack size you dont have to check-raise very large, but even just over a min-raise will set it up, so he is getting a much better price on a river jam.
