      yeah the guy had a flush. i don't think anything was mentioned about 3 same suit flop in the silver Cbet article for SSS. But in such situations, should I forgo the Cbet? Besides, 975 makes it even more dangerous.

      Yeah I would check/fold here. To be profitable the bet needs to be sucessful 40% of the time. I don't think BU is going to fold anywhere near that amount on this flop.

      Plus since BU raised you pre-flop, you probably should have pushed or folded.

      Postflop: Ok!
      Turn: You can check and see if the river brings a 4th but would you play check/fold then?
      % chance that someone flops a Flush on the flop is <4%

      Best regards,
      Gerv
