      personally i think raising flop is better. Cause if he isn't on a flush/straight draw and another heart comes then you get no more money. If he does have a flush draw he will atleast call the flop and might bet turn again. There's just so many draws on flop and turn that i think you have to atleast reraise the turn to get the most out of those draws.

      And in this case.. its unlikely he'd have gone all in with 4 hearts on the board with a 6 high flush.

      Dude stop telling everyone your secret, then people will know not to shove KK vs you preflop because that's just what you were going after when showing those crazy 72o bluffs.
