      Villain-unknown.Do I have a shove over his flop raise?Turn fold seems fine I guess since I need 32% equity and vs TP I have only 27%.

      Hey jozata.

      Villain is not fullstacked, that means there's a big chance that he is a fish. So a 3bet there doesn't make sense when you know he might call.

      Big suited connectors work well ip on single raised pots, not so well in 3bet pots - because they have great playability postflop which you restrict by 3betting.

      I would just call ip preflop and go from the flop.

      As played, I would check behind the flop (free card) and call a bet on the turn if the odds are good. If villain checks both flop and turn, I would cbet turn.

      I don't think you have a shove over his flop raise, you'll be against sets too often. And does he fold overpair there? (JJ,QQ) He doesn't imo.

      you can really never b/f gutshot straight flushdraw, since you always have that spot fold equity and against Tx hand you´re flipping:

      board: Th8h3c
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AsTs 51.72% 512 0
      7h6h 48.28% 478 0

      So better get all-in on the flop where your equity is the highest
      once board pairs you likely have to fold, since now you can be drawing dead
