      Hero mucks T:heart: 9:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 23%, Flop 39%, Turn 18%)
      SB wins 168.6 BB

      His 3bet is 2% 2100 hands he plays 3bet pots bet bet bet.
      So I guess only hands QQ+ AK, or even maybe not AK?
      I call because we have 128 BB, and I am IP, so if I hit nicelly I can stack him very often.
      I think the best is fold turn, because of possible full hause, but I called because he bets small. River, the worst card for me. I winn only against AK, and lose against KK or AA.
      Again he bets 50% so I called and hope he has AK. It has to work 33% of time, and I would expect him to push with KK/AA river, and thought he is afraid of 8x or 55 or flush here so he bets 50% river.

      Preflop I prefer folding against the 3bet here. We are most likely to be against QQ+, AK and really no need to spew money to try to outplay him while he has quite a strong range.

      On the flop calling is fine.

      I prefer folding the turn here. The board pairs, so there is a big chance we are behind, and the Ah is not a "clear" out anymore.

      We can actually think about a shove on the river since if we put him KK+, AK we have 60% equity here and especially if you expect him to shove KK+ we can go for a shove here ourselves.
