I have no reads on villian since it's only level 1. My question is should i have bet the turn?

Should i have bet here? I honestly don't like the check call he put on me on the flop. I don't think an Ace check calls, then checks again when the flush gets there. Is my thinking correct here?

Smells like a made draw to me.

Easy check on the turn, nice job. Basically, unless you called you with second pair on the flop, you're now dead in the water. Flush got there, OESD got there and if he had an ace you could be on a one-outer now.

I would check. It would probably be in your best interests to keep the pot small in this case. You left out stack sizes, but I typically wouldn't bet the full pot on the flop either. More like 90-100. Or even check the flop and bet or raise the turn if the stacks are deep. That's not really necessary though, I just like getting tricky sometimes.

yea...stacks sizes weren't that important...everyone was roughly at 1500. I did indeed check the turn. and the 4th heart came on river giving me an easy folding situation. Kind of discouraging and that's why i questioned if i should have continued one more bet on turn
