      Opponent seems bad TAG- seen him 3betting 89o in a BB and 3 barreling his stack without any equity.
      21/15, 3b 7, 3b vs steal from sb 13% (31), call open from sb 10% (50), AF F:3.8, T:4.5, Agg freq F: 39%, T: 38%, x/r flop 14% (21), 546 hands.

      Would you prefer get it in on the flop or let him barrel scare cards and call him down?
      As played I shoved turn because of the possible back-door flush draw but probably better just to call down, to keep his bluffs in the range?

      It all comes down to reads here.

      The question is whether you think he's capable of check/raising and turn barreling a draw; if he's not, you're beat most of the time.

      However, the way you describe him, I would opt for a call down and make a note. Shoving on the turn just folds out his bluffs, even though you get the money in ahead against draws.

      I would prefer shoving turn, since there are two flushdraws on the board and not really sure you would likely to call him down on any rivercard and if he is bluffing there random overcards I think you would also see him fold KQ or AJ
