      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.57 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , Q:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, MP3 calls $0,40, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($0,95) 2:club: , K:diamond: , J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,60, MP3 calls $0,60.

        Decided to cbet against villain with bd-flushdraw, nut straightdraw and one overcard.

      Turn: ($2,15) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,50, MP3 calls $1,50.

        Another bet, since the third diamond hit I decided to bet/fold here.

      River: ($5,15) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3,60, MP3 raises to $7,10 (All-In), Hero calls $3,50.

        I make my straight, fire another bet and villain pushes. Call?

      Final Pot: $19,35

      WP IMO.

      You have to call his push on the river, I don't see myself folding with those odds.

      He might push with any two pair/set/ or lower straight.
      I would also call. Nh.

      Villain was holding ATs :diamond: , made his flush on the turn. I get slowplayed these "monsters" a lot, anything I can do about it (except for not calling the river with 10-A straight on a flush-board of course) ?

      Imo here you can´t do anything. Villain played the hand good and you loose a lot of value not betting the river or making very though bet/fold. As I said he could hold two pair/set or lower straight. You're getting around 4,5:1((5,15+3,6+7,1)/3,5) odds to call his river shove. That means that you have to be ahead 18,2% (1/5,5) to make that call profitable. Are you sure that all of his pushing range you're not that much ahead?
      So general answer is: oop imo you can't avoid getting stacked at these situation. ip you may check behind for example on the turn and only call his river bet if you're feeling that he might hit his flush on the turn.
