      Is check/call turn ok to get value from floating? I can't have value from bet bet bet, or maybe I could bet bet check/call if flush misses.
      River with overbet hi represents only air (floating) imo or rarely nuts. Like one of previous similar scenarios when I called river overbet villian floated and hitted straight with gutshot. Against regg, I would not play this way, but I don't see shortstackers folding at all, so I can't fold this.

      River is basically about whether villain is capable of bluffing or not. It's true that he's really polarized. I don't see him betting that many 3X on the turn, he may just choose to check it down instead. He also has very few combos of QJ/3X/33/44/Q4 as compared to busted straight and flush draws like clubs, A2/A5/56/57/67.

      It could be a fold or call, but it really depends on opponent type. If he's an aggro fish then this is an easy call.
