      my oponent is a 67/4/0.7

      so i have 2 pair so he either had trips...highly unlikely, or draw, or even good Q

      So assuming that i 3bet flop and he calls

      turn completes flush so i kinda shut down, but my question is could i have bet turn?

      Villain looks like a fishy guy and while the min/raise looks scary he can do this with worse 2p or 1p hands so I wouldn't fold. I also like raising because I can get value from worse and protect against the occasional draw that raises us (and there are both str and flush draws).

      I would probably raise the flop a bit larger, more towards $3.

      The rest looks fine although I would bet the turn. That 4d sucks for us, and we have a PSB left, so only bet that makes sense is a shove and that may scare him away however there are worse that can still call. Like Qx (with diamonds), 2p, straight draws (with or without flush draw).
