      I have tried shoving with the flush draw twice before so now after the RR I decided just to call and see if a heart comes. After the next card I tough that we can also get a split if the board makes a straight. And on the turn I do not see anything else but a ch/f after the board pairs.

      Should it be a fold on the flop?

      P.S. Opponent had 22.

      Hello Slimijs,

      Flop: Depends a lot on the opponents. If he is some kind of aggressive type then you might as well sometimes 3bet and go broke here. But for example he is more passive guy then I'd rather Call it and play on further streets.

      As played
      Turn: Should be somehow fine if you expect to get his stack on river if you do hit. Although sometimes I even prefer folding if I see the opponent have rather weak hand.
      River: Check/Fold, nothing much you can do.

      Best regards.
