      i probably wouldn't 3b the Flop unless I wanted to shove the Turn. I guess you could argue that worse hands aren't really calling and QX which raise the Flop for thin value probably won't fold either. But I think that you don't have many better options.

      Of course if you felt that villain would shove the Turn with all his air/draws then check/calling would make more sense than shoving Turn. But as you can see, that's not the case here. Villain did check Turn and shove River. He's not repping much but it's still kind of hard to herocall here.
