I dont always raise 44 utg especially on aggro table but this table seemed not so.
I have no reads on his donking range as never seen him before, but feel I need to raise with fd there, find a safe turn and bet enough to set up river shove, but river completes flush, even though its the backdoor flush.
What do I do here, if I shove then probably only better hands will call, if I bet small and he shoves feels bad to fold after putting in most of my stack, is it better to just check call here allowing him to bluff river even if he shoves.
A similar hand occured a couple of orbits later and yet again the river completes the flush, feels like I am missing out here somewhere.
