      PF I don't think it's really necessary to bet so much, I'd make it $0.90.

      Flop, well, I'm not sure here, I think it's better to wait for a better spot to put your money in.

      But there's the fact you say he's been playing fishy and you're not getting bad odds. Well, I'd fold, but let's see what other players and the judges think.

      I'm with Faye6891 on this one. Not only the flush to worry about, you are also beat against AQ or AK here. Not much you could beat apart from a bluff.

      #1 You made very strong bet on the flop and he decided to shove. He might shove here with set or top pair and flushdraw, but he mostly has AQ or AK.
      So I think bet/fold on that board is best, since he could easily have flush and you´re drawing to runner-runners.
