      The guy is aggresive fish. Calls very often cold 3bets and plays aggressive.
      Here he was a bit too much aggressive, but I have problem folding flushes, when there is no possible full hause. I thought he might do it with weaker flush, with straight, or set. So I think I lose only against KQs.

      this is a tough spot because of stack depth. I probably call without too much thinking in 100bb.

      I probably won't fold the Q high flush draw, but with TXs this is as low as it gets. I would probably fold smaller flushes, while this guy is a fish I don't think it's that likely he overplays sets and 2pairs in this manner (but if you have a read on him taking this line and overplaying semi-strong hands given the stack depth then a call is good.)

      Close spot, don't really mind the call, but i'm folding smaller flushes. what about his VPIP and PFR? It's good to know his range in this spot here cos if he is on the tighter side you just beat way fewer flushes than let's say a VPIP 75 guy who probably plays any 2 suited cards.
