      13/10/214 and 9.2 3bet 33 WTSD.
      I heard such board is good for float yesterday.
      Against his 9.2 range, he would miss often so I chose float.

      my question is should I shove on turn because of his bit high WTSD?

      I fold preflop. Many players make the mistake to hold on to the global 3bet%. Villain's 3bet range is way stronger in this spot... He squeezes versus an MP open.

      The problem is that we also don't get good odds + there are reversed implieds... I don't expect us to be good when hitting Axx or Qxx flops...

      When we are vs that wide range you could float but this flop is kinda ugly because we even don't have a BDFD. I'd just give up here , unless you see he is completely honest OTT (low cbet%).

      As played I bet the turn a bit bigger to gain some FE and not let him spew. I bet $7.

      Hi,

      floating that flop is fine, although I would prefer having some backdoor flushdraw. I think 4.8$ bet is too small- if you want to have fold equity then you should bet at least half the pot, since flush completed I would shove river- it is very hard him to call me down with marginal hands, like 8x, 99/TT
      Also I think it is not bad flop to bluffraise 8.6$- you likely can´t continue most turn cards, so rather take yourself initiative and by raising you are making folds more often than calling flop/betting turn

      best regards,

      Nice line to raise flop immediately!

      Do you think preflop is standard?
