      Should have hero push after MP2's raise? However, hero had nuts and pot size raise indicates that MP2 is protecting against a flush or a straight and therefore he does not have a flush draw. Therefore, hero's smooth call may induce that he may be drawing and force BB to push (which in fact happend).

      If BB had a flushdraw, 2pairs or set, and he just calls the flop, you won't fold on the turn if he gets a fullhouse or a flush, because the pot will be too big -> you give him good implied odds, you make a mistake, not him.

      If you push, he may call with his 2pairs, set or flushdraw, thus he makes a mistake cos he doesn't have potodds -> you make value.

      EDIT : raise 5BB preflop.

      Board is very drawy. I think you should push. Flushdraw is just getting too good odds to call, two pair and set would call anyway your shove.
