      36/24 raise c-bet was 3/22 spots with him.

      It's a pretty crazy hand, i felt like he was making a move on me, when i raise the turn he isnt just calling with a flush draw fo sho an the fact he ships the flush made no sense.

      Some advice please Eman :P

      I'd start thinking from the flop about his overall range. When he check/raises he wants to represent a strong hand but his sizing is not consistent with that. On this board he would check/raise bigger for value imo. I would almost instantly put him gutshots, 88/77 or just random air that wants to play back. I would not be worried about the flushdraw either.

      Do you think 3betting small on flop looks more bluffier? I would usually either do that and hope he spazzes KQ, 88, or whatever random hands he could have or go into calldown. It might not be a huge concern but with your line you never have a bluff when you call flop and raise turn, do you? Given the action I actually prefer a shove on the turn instead of a minraise. When you do fancier plays like this it's usually very dynamic based so I can't really agree or disagree just from the hand history. :)

      LE: The shove is thin value (Tx doesn't fold in case he has it) and just capitalize on all the equity he could still have with KQ, 76 and so on if I don't know his bluffing tendencies on rivers.
