I think you made the right choice to fold it because how he played it he looked like he had either a flush or 2's full boat.

This goes back to the risk reward factor. How much is in the pot to how much you have to put in and what % of the time you think youll win.

Im fine with the fold. I think it could of been played a little bet before the all in descision. you have ~$5 in the pot and must call ~$30. Nh sir.

Raise a bit on the flop.

Besides that, I think the fold was OK here considering you don't have much reads on him. He limped from UTG, he could have easily had a high A or high suited diamonds, even diamond suited connecting cards. Without betting out the flop there, the way this is played, I don't mind the fold on the river there.

He could have just as easily been bluffing trying to represent the flush, and then just reraising overbetting the river, trying to push you off you hand there--but there's nothing wrong with the fold there at the river, if we go by how you played on the flop and turn. Could have played it a bit better on the flop and turn though.

This is similar to another hand you posted, but the situation is much different because the pot is small. With his turn raise and a $32.65 bet on the river in a $11 pot and no reads on player I have to believe he did make his flush or perhaps better.

Yeah I like a flop bet too. He won't expect you to be leading with a jack, and will probably give you action with any draw or king.

As played, I can't really see him doing this with KQ+ or anything that you have beat for that matter. Good fold methinks.
