      Hero shows T:spade: A:spade: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 64%, Flop 57%, Turn 82%)
      SB wins $5.85


      Obviously river is a snap, but what about pre, flop and turn?
      I am usually more inclined to play my big draws aggressively, but he is shortstacked so we don't have as much fold equity and lesser implied odds hence the passive line.

      Perhaps flop reraise is better?

      Hi,

      I would prefer 3-betting pre-flop, since min-raise is often weaker hand than ATs.

      Flop: I would raise 0.35$ and play for stacks. You have very strong draw and consider his bet size you´re sometimes ahead and you get fold some better hands as AJ-AK+ hands that has some equity (like 98).

      Turn: call is fine, if you want you can always raise and play for stacks, but if player is not folding any better hands or getting all-in worse then I think call is better option

      River: easy call with second nuts

      best regards,
