      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems like a nice hand, I wouldn't play much differently. Not much you can do on the river while flush completes. :( Otherwise we might consider value-betting.

      Best Regards.

      Without much additional information would you fold the turn if he shipped? I would be tended to fold.

      Why do you raise then? :) Doesn't make sense to turn your hand into bluff.

      Good point.
      I figured that the board hits him rather often and I can raise in order to make him call with his draws, which he, as I thought at the time, would more often call with instead of push over the top. I thought that once he pushes there are many hands that beat mine.
      Folding is weak, obviously.
      Calling I didn't like too much as there are many cards that I do not want to see on the river and I could get myself into some difficult spots.

      Are we not overplaying our hand by going broke on the turn?

      Why should we? He definitely has a lot worse hands as Ax there in his range. And if we raise = we go broke. Or if we don't want to then just take pot control.
