Would there have been any any value in bluffing the river when the flush completed? I feel that in looking back I played the hand very much like a flush draw and as such could have easily put in a 1/2 pot bet and folded to any aggression. Thanks for your feedback as always

    NH, I think you played it fine. Don't feel like there should be much merit in bluffing the river at these stakes as people usually won't be happy folding a queen or better. You would mostly target 99-JJ with a bluffbet and for that I guess our showdownvalue will be ok enough to take it down without betting here. It would maybe be a decent spot to bluff at higher stakes though - so good that you at least thought about it.
