Default Save the money or burn it?

I chose burn. How often is this line NOT a flush? I was getting 4:1 and just crossed my fingers and hoped to see a donkily played 2pair/set. If he pushed turn I'dve called anyways so...BURN IT!

No real reads btw.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (5 handed) internettexasholdem.com

BB ($615.10)
Hero ($533)
MP ($315)
Button ($427.60)
SB ($517.50)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. SB posts a blind of $3.
<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $25</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, SB (poster) calls $22, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>.

Flop: ($56) 5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $44</font>, SB calls $44.

Turn: ($144) T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $111</font>, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to $222</font>, Hero calls $111.

River: ($588) J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB calls $226.50 (All-In), Hero calls $226.50.

Final Pot: $1041

Yeah I should have bet more on flop, but I have been making a lot of 3/4 cbets and was hoping to get played back at.

once again, betting the turn is a huge leak.

Meh, $44 is fine here. If you're gonna bet turn, get raised and plan on calling any blank river, shouldn't you just push turn?

I imagine he probably hadn't deciced whether or not to call if the river was a blank yet. These guys aren't folding either if the river pairs the board so i don't mind just calling the turn.

I think this is a flush though about 95% of the time and would like to think i would lay down on this river but with 4:1 the call is meh.

That's why calling is good, so you can hit the boat and get paid off. Calling regardless isn't.

best line is still checking behind on the turn.

and I hope none of you will come in and say something stupid like "i have to protect against 4th diamond".

Do you really think so? Should I put my opponent on A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] immediately after he calls the flop bet? I mean, cmon he can have a lot of hands and the last thing I want to is check and have him "accidently" river me with some small [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].

Folding river seems correct, but then again I _AM_ a call station.
