      Since you can´t call, fold:) He won´t fold his hand and why would you like to go all-in with a draw.

      Why couldn't you call? you get very good odds for it and also implied odds if you hit your 3rd hearts with turn, because most midstacks can't get away from toppairs even when there's a flush possibility out there. I don't think push is a good move in this case because he is midstack and again, usually midstacks don't fold top pair here even with weak kicker.

      When I thought about it, also like call, your pot odds are 2,75:1 and you would stack him probably with heart, you would have to call his push also, if you hit your A.

      Calling is a big mistake as you are commited - try to use your fold equity by pushing!

      Well we have different opinions because assuming we have 11 outs (9 FD and 2 A). The EV from folding and pushing is almost the same. Independent of how likely it is villain will call.

      EDIT. And this is assuming my maths is correct

      EDIT. Yeah my math was wrong. If you are 90+% sure he will call there becomes no difference between calling and folding any thing less push

      C-bet is OK but when he raised you, i would fold, his range is probably higher then yours and chasing flushes is mayntimes not good, even if EV is good, odds are good but anway...
