    Would really appreciate some feedback on this hand

    *I understand the turn could be B/F but that's not why I posted this*

    My initial reaction was that his line looks a lot like a flush, however I actually don't think that with this action there are SHOULD be many flushes in his range. 53dd is the obvious one, although a rec player 'playing the rush' might be calling more draws in this spot with poor odds. There is always the chance that he lead out with a draw, then regretted it after getting repopped so makes the call due to frustration/not wanting to fold his big draw/not really knowing what else to do. I also think that line of thought is pretty consistent with A5 or a weird 2 pair as well, and because he's in position he can definitely be betting a wider range than just flushes when you check, with the intention of checking back the river. Rec players often make nonsensical bets with strange holdings because they don't know what else to do, and in my experience this frequency goes up in tournaments compared to cash games. On balance, as played I call here and re-evaluate river. If you call and he snap shoves a blank river I am letting this one go, however I expect him to go to showdown often, and if he bets some weird small amount then we can call and be shown some strange worse value hand a fair amount of the time. Calling now and folding river is more of a cash game play and sucks because of the damage to your stack, but I feel like it is the best vacuum play in this spot. People show up with too much random junk in live donkaments for me to make a hero fold here for just one bet.
