      I have flush.... but this play looks very strong.. i know he is aggro but even so...
      Not sure about the turn... and the river... well i was thinking about c/c the river (!?), but double card wasnt my dream card.

      Preflop: Iso-raising is an option if you think villain plays fit or fold on the Flop

      Flop: When villain raises the Flop he could have some one pair hands, some two pair hands, and some draws (usually combo draws)

      Turn: I'm not too sure what he has here which can raise the Turn lead. Looks like a flush or 2pairs to me. Would he raise one pair here? I'm not sure.

      River: I agree that his play looks really strong here to me. And this is probably one of the worse cards in the deck for u. I think other cards are closer (K pairing or 3 pairing) but I would not mind making a nitty fold here. We are getting 30% pot odds here, and there aren't too many smaller flushes in his range (4d6d, 2d4d are the only hands which come to mind). I think he would often flat AX on the Turn vs your lead there.
