      Do you go for it here vs loose player even though flop is suited? The A&K block many flush combos but this guy doesn't fold to 3bets, so there are still a lot of flushes in his range.

      Hi.

      If he can have a ton of speculative hands preflop which gives him many combos of flushes here, he can have AQ AJ AT A9 A8 A2s-A7s. If he's a fish he's never ever folding top pair here on the Turn.

      If he's never folding top pair on the Turn, then we are beating way more hands and losing to way fewer hands. Thus we have a lot of value in a bet, and that would be the only logical choice.
