      I think people are way likelier to bet at this flop. I much prefer a check/raise for immediate value.

      River has to be the worst card in the deck (the ultimate scare card which should scare him into folding or maybe it improves him to a flush). Still if he is loose and a huge calling station I would push anyway as I would still expect him to hero-call with some KQ/KJ combos which should technically outnumber his sets/flushes.

      Problem with that is that this is a 4way pot and you have shown so much strength by firing 3 times with this dynamic. That should make him want to fold so much more. Also, his WTSD isn't that high at 26%. Definitely shoving if it's 30%+.

      I think c/f is actually a reasonable alternative. If the River was a non-Ace spade I think shoving is much better.
