      Stats:21/17/3,2/87 hands...small sample

      preflop its standard open with ATs from Co.

      BB 3bets and his sizing is not big so I decide to call ,because my hand is playable post flop.

      Flop missed me , but I decided to call once to see the turn,because I have bacdoor straight draw and backdoor flush draw.

      I hit another heart on the turn, so I call again, because I have quit good pot odds and I know I have some implied odds with backdoor flush because he wont put me on BDFD often.

      River is another spade and it could potentionally complete my flush draw .
      Villain checks and I don't think he would ever check with flush in this 3bet spot and even with sets si I decided to turn my hand into bluff and shoved it.

      What do you think about my line ? I know he had only half a pot behind the line on the river but I think it would be very hard for him to call even with sets, or two pair. he has to fold 1 out of 3 times and my shove will be profitable

      i'll say fold flop, you can't have more than 2 outs for backdoor flush+straight. As played call turn is a nice move imo, he doesn't expect us to have backdoor flush. River is not good for us, that spade scares him, i don't think he would call anything, overpotting is good because if called gives you max value + you can balance overpotting with busted draws.

      BB's sizing is standard in such spots and our hand doesn't really play great postflop in 3bet pots so I would fold or 4bet bluff.

      Flop call looks reasonable with some backdoors.

      Turn is good.

      I think shoving river is good.
      Card is scary and I wouldn't expect him to c/c a hand like AA here so betting here is fine.
