      Hi,

      Villain plays 16/11 30% wtsd 36% Aggr freq.

      So I actually don't really know what to do in this spot. Obv I'm never going to fold. But if I raise to like $8 I'm giving him the odds to call his FD's. If I just call it's possible I'm giving him a free card on river and maybe losing value. So I just decided to shove which maybe looks weaker than my topset (maybe FD who's looking for FE).

      If it was smt like QJ9s then I think shove would be fine, but since here you only afraid flushes and even then you likely can call once bet on the turn I think better is to b/c to see your hand as weak as possible and then induce turn bet from bluffs.
      If you don´t think he is bluffing I think shove or going to 8.5$ is fine. There aren´t really every time flush turn card and you can shove most of the turns.
