      Hi.

      Preflop call is standard, without any aggressive 4betting dynamic.

      On the Flop, you should just fold right away. I only consider floating with
      1) backdoor flush draws (there must be a heart on the flop)
      2) ranges must be really wide (that could perhaps be the case here)

      but for this hand I'm always folding.

      Thanks.

      Bdfd only gives 4% almost insignificant isn't it ? 25% is our highcards if both live, and we knew he likes 3betting but not much more. Also he is aggressive which points to fold, i guess but not much info on that either.

      1) BDFD only gives us 4%, but allows us to continue on 20% of Turns. I think being able to continue on 20% of turns is more significant than making the flush 4% of the time.

      2) If we float this flop always, we are just defending too wide of a range. Using backdoor flush draws helps us to balance out our defending frequencies.

      Of course you could always argue that balance isn't too important at lower limits, but still I don't see the point in trying to fight for every single pot.

      You are assuming 25% equity if both are live, but there's a good chance that one or both of them are dead.
