      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 102.16 BB (VPIP: 24.71, PFR: 20.60, 3Bet Preflop: 9.83, Hands: 3,634)
      Hero (BB): 100.5 BB
      CO: 102.7 BB (VPIP: 25.17, PFR: 20.27, 3Bet Preflop: 8.14, Hands: 465)
      BTN: 100.5 BB (VPIP: 28.32, PFR: 20.23, 3Bet Preflop: 4.23, Hands: 182)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: K:club:

      CO raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) A:diamond: 8:club: 7:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets 5 BB, Hero raises to 14 BB, CO raises to 32 BB, Hero raises to 97.5 BB and is all-in, CO calls 65.5 BB

      Turn: (201.5 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:

      River: (201.5 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:

      Hero mucks J:club: K:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 17%, Flop 24%, Turn 16%)
      CO shows A:club: A:spade: (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 83%, Flop 76%, Turn 84%)
      CO wins 197.5 BB

      I almost always raise with fd, OESD in order to balance with nuts.
      He cbets 83%, and folds 1/3 times to check raise.
      I went all in because I expected to have FE since he clicked back, but probably is the best call his raise and fold turn unimproved?

      Firstly, this is not a click-it-back. This is a normal sized raise, and if I were in his shoes I would often go smaller, 28-30bb.

      Secondly, this spot is so dependent on dynamics. Do people 3bet bluff this flop often? I don't think so. Maybe they re-attack wetter flops like J86, whereby you are expected to checkraise a ton of gutshots.

      Thirdly, I think I would often check/call this hand on the Flop. It does not mean that you have to play your flush draws so aggressively every time. This is dependent on villain's frequencies though for barreling the Turn.

      Pot odds offered on Flop = 18/70 = 25.7%

      I would usually fold low flush draws here. With the King high flush draw it's close. We have around 20% chance of hitting the draw so I think flatting here is fine. Bad thing about shoving here is that we block combo draws from villain's range. KcQc makes more sense for jamming here. We want to dominate as many worse hands as possible (5c6c, 4c6c, 4c5c, Tc9c, TcJc, Jc9c). By having Jc we block 2 worse combo draws from his range.
