      Bet/call allin flop. You have the nutflushdraw+overcards.

      If you don't like variance then just fold. Lets see what judges advice :P

      Certainly I will bet near potsize on the flop and call any shove. As played, I am instacalling the overbet anyway. He doesn't have to have a better hand to do this. By checking the flop you have turned your preflop 3bet into a steal, and induced this play with any hand.

      You have nut FD, overcards, BDSD. You have to count the straight outs, which are 1.5, even though you don't actually need them. All up, 16.5 outs to improve, and 10 would be the nuts. Easily enough to be all in here if you can get there.

      b/c is standard line here, because for fold equity and good overall equity, if you check then intention to shove if he bets, once he overshoves, you should call- he has there a lot of times, just draw.
