      32/25/7.0 - 12.1% 3bet and 17% fold to 3bet.

      pf 3bet for value. postflop I have a choice between bet/raise and check calling, maybe check raise? I choose to bet and be deceptive if flush hits.

      On the turn I improve and worse hands can call, I still have outs, the raise seems overly aggressive to me so I call - I figure I have outs if I'm beat and if he has a worse hand, then great.

      I think you played this hand fine.

      I don't like your sizings though - I'd make it $1.1 preflop.

      On the flop we don't need to bet so big - this is a 3bet pot and something like $1.05 should be fine because of the SPR.

      As played, bet/calling the turn is fine.
