      1) Bet larger on the Flop and Turn.
      2) I think calling here is fine vs someone who is full of it on the Turn and is capable of bluff raising the turn to represent the flush. In fact I think he should be flatting the Turn with his nut flushes very often to allow u to barrel. A nut flush would also be almost invulnerable so I see no reason for him to raise the Ace of spade here.

      I don't see him having too many AsX hands too. He doesn't play As2 As3 As5 As4 which can float the flop, and I don't see why he should raise a hand like AsQh on the Turn. So I am not really buying his story.

      3) Since I think he doesn't have As all that much, assuming nut flushes almost always flat the Turn again, and he is capable of bluffing and repping the flush, I think this is an easy call after calling the Turn raise.
