      BTN: 31.2 BB
      SB: 154.96 BB
      Hero (BB): 102.72 BB
      UTG: 227.08 BB
      MP: 118.24 BB
      CO: 238.72 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has J:club: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, fold, SB raises to 9 BB, Hero calls 8 BB, CO calls 6 BB

      Flop: ($6.75, 3 players) 5:spade: J:heart: 9:heart:
      SB bets 19 BB, Hero calls 19 BB, CO raises to 54 BB, fold, Hero raises to 93.72 BB and is all-in, CO calls 39.72 BB

      Turn: ($58.36, 2 players) A:spade:

      River: ($58.36, 2 players) 2:heart:

      CO shows T:heart: 6:heart: (Flush, Jack High) (Pre 18%, Flop 27%, Turn 16%)
      Hero mucks J:club: J:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 82%, Flop 73%, Turn 84%)
      CO wins 221.8 BB

      Should I cold call his 3bet, he 3bets 8%, or even 4bet?
      On turn should I raise his 3bet? I thought he is probably having KK or AA when he bets so much, multy way, so I just called. Then other guy raises, probably with lower sets, so I have 100% best hand on flop.
      Did he play bad with his flush draw, considering that he shows a lot of strength in multy way 3bet pot?

      in general i almost always prefer to avoid coldcalling cos our range is just super obvious. I'll 4bet if possible, and you should 4bet bluff sometimes in this spot too for balance.

      on the flop i think the way you played it is fine. they won't have flush draws too often and when the stack size is shallow protection becomes less of an issue.
