      Flop: I would have cbetted the Flop here. It's 3way, but still we have 2 overs, backdoor flush draw and club draw. We can get improved to a pretty decent hand on 10 clubs (flush draws), 6 J/T (top pair), and 6 Q/8 (OESD). That's close to half the deck (22/47 cards on the Turn).

      Turn: We got the best Turn in the deck I'll just raise and commit myself vs BB.

      River: He overbet jams here. This is really sick but he's short I think it's really hard to fold here. I don't mind folding all QX here but with the straight I'll just make a crying call. Unless we have a concrete read that he never bluffs and never does this with worse hands, I don't think we can fold. You'll be surprised to see him do this with 98s/88 some % of the time.

      Post-flop tendencies would absolutely help us here. I think he had some Qx of hearts when he started to bet on turn. River is a nasty spot all in all and if he is passive fish I'm always folding here.
