      Hey,

      Why do you call preflop? Seems like a clear preflop fold to me against this sort of player. As played pre, I favour checking back flop. He is either giving up in which case you win later anyway or is playing fancy with his top set and you never realise your equity. After you bet though, you get good odds to call IP and draw to your flush. Shoving there is very spewy imo, since you have just about 0 folding equity.

      I see.
      Well, I called his preflop Limp-3Bet cuz I had suited broadway connectors InPosition , it was cheap and I had good Implied Odds if i hit my Flush or Straight.
      He was also Limping a lot before, so as well I was thinking that many times he will give up on the Flop or Turn after missing :f_ugly:
