      I'm really confused by this hand ...
      Preflop I don't really want to 3bet since I want money from weaker aces, queens. On flop I don't really go for a raise since I would invest too much money but there are so many f-ing draws ...
      On turn I'm trying to represent strong heart. I think that by minraising it's like that I really want him to stay in the hand.

      Villan is 16/11 villan, 5 aggr. factor over 134 hands

      I like 3-betting pf, since he can easily call pf with KQ, KJ, maybe some weaker Qx hands, you take initiative, sometimes get 4-bet bluffed when you can shove AQs for value and if you don´t really 3-bet there with AQs, then it is hard to balance your 3-bet range for value, so he can really start 4-betting you a lot and you can´t really do anything
      Postflop: I think flop call is fine and I´d likely fold turn
      Players doesn´t really bluff on 4-board flushes, so if he bets he likely has there flush and won´t really fold to min-raise. So I think fold is better than putting in 14bb drawing dead a lot of times
