      oK so on the turn is where I question myself. Fishy aggro player bets, 10/7 passive reg raises.

      Here I shove:
      - to protect vs a higher FD
      - because I don't really like quite a few cards on the river and I would be put in a difficult spot (card that pairs the board, K, Q, club)
      - I have a redraw to flush against KQ

      Is it better to smooth call to allow the fish to join in?
      If on the river one of those scarecards come, I don't think I could fold given pot odds.
