      Button didn't show

      Preflop I think standard value 3bet. OTF I seen very small FE in shoving my hand so I called it with imo great implied odds on FD - ok, or is it better to called rather Ahigh FD, which has better SD value? OTT it is questionable if potentional Q or K OTR sometimes will be good..imo not, because this board hits his middle PPs, some SC etc. very often.

      I am really not sure if my thoughts are right so thx for any comment:)

      Preflop: I think your size is a little too large but not a big deal. My standard here is 1.40-1.60. I prefer calling here though. Firstly, BB is a fish and we want to let him into the hand, KQs also plays fairly decent in multiway situations. Secondly, BU is pretty tight from the BU with 38% range, 38% is still strong enough to value 3bet with KQs but given the 2 factors mentioned I think calling is slightly better.

      Flop: I would just jam the Flop. I would bet/fold smaller flush draws though. We are only getting crushed by sets and AcXc, but we are doing fairly well vs most other hands.
