      His bet sizing of the flop threw me off a little, but when he checks on the turn I think I'm in good shape.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop his bet is really suspicious but our hand is too strong to fold against one bet here so calling is fine.

      When he checks the turn I like betting here and your sizing looks fine.
      What would you do if he shoves though?

      As played, I don't really mind check back the river.
      Flush got there plus I think that overall he's going to bet Qx on the turn himself so it will be hard to take value from worse here if we bet.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Good question, I'm not really sure how I would react to that, over the small sample I have he's playing 57/24 so he's not raising preflop near as much as he's calling, and he has raised a c-bet on the turn once.

      I think if he shoved me there it would look pretty strong, I know some players will bet pretty huge with overpairs/set, the turn also completes some draws and puts out a flush draw so it's definitely a pretty tough spot for me, roughly I can assume he's not going to have something like 46 but A4/QQ+ is possible. So I could maybe fold there?
      What would you suggest?

      If he shoves here I prefer folding.
      I doubt that he's going to play this way with a worse hand here at all.
