      I think this is a nice hand, because you have the nut flush, and the flop and the turn call is good. I think a raise on the flop isn't good because he raised from utg so the villain won't fold better hands there. The turn call is good, because if you raise there you just scare away the villain because your hand is so obvious. I think the only debatable thing here is the river donk-shove. But he can have a strong hand too (smaller flushes, maybe straight etc.) here, so I think the play on the river isn't bad.

      If I were ip, deep, and had at least one more cold call in front of me, maybe I would flat as drawing hand.

      I fold preflop

      Hello Sikac,

      Not against such an opponent who most likely is always willing to play for the stacks with overpairs/TP. Although I am not really sure if I'd Call the turn over raise cause there are too many bad cards which we don't want to see on the river, any FD/a lot of SD completing cards, and as long I assume he is paying us anyways with overpairs we could easily just ship it, he doesn't have much left.

      Best Regards.
