      BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 13.04, PFR: 4.35, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 24)
      SB: 110.2 BB
      BB: 105.5 BB (VPIP: 9.09, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 12)
      UTG: 146.4 BB (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 15)
      Hero (MP): 107 BB
      CO: 141 BB (VPIP: 22.43, PFR: 20.56, 3Bet Preflop: 16.13, Hands: 110)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:spade: 9:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, CO calls 3 BB, fold, SB calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (10 BB, 3 players) 7:heart: 5:club: Q:heart:
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets 5.8 BB, fold, Hero calls 5.8 BB

      Turn: (21.6 BB, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets 12.4 BB, Hero raises to 32 BB, CO calls 19.6 BB

      River: (85.6 BB, 2 players) 3:heart:
      Hero checks, CO bets 100.2 BB and is all-in, fold

      CO wins 81.7 BB


      My thinking process is what is he shipping for value when the flush hits, other then a flush. He calls the x/r which reps a lot of strength too.
      Thoughts?

      well hard decision to find a fold here...
      i guess fold is correct, because the ship is for value...
      the question is, is it every time the flush, or is villain able to overplay hands here?
      Can he shove here AQ or any sets?

      Fold flop, i only see 3 clean outs for the turn.
      You are very lucky you hit on the turn..

      I think check calling the flop with 6 clean outs and not even bdfd is not the best play.
      OTR villains shove can be a bluff and it should be a bluff. What to do here depends a bit on what kind of a range we want to give villain, is it balanced or value heavy. But anyway, without analyzing this more I would say fold is ok.

      We can fold flop. On river I prefer the fold. We will see a flush more times than a bluff.

      I think the flop call is a pretty close one. It could be dangerous, because as others mentioned, if you hit your straight, but it's a heart, you are not in a good spot. I think the river is a fold.

      I'm not sure if cbetting in a three-way pot is a good idea, with just a gutshot straight draw on this draw heavy board. Almost all the hands that can call here has you beat.

      We're not betting to be called ofc. By betting we still have a good chunk of Foldequity, By playing x/c we're giving that way of winning all up which is way worse.
      In other words: If we x/c we're fishing for 3 outs with 0 foldequity.

      SB has to play rather faceup as he's OOP vs 2 players, so he's easy to deal with.

      IMO if we open this from UTG/MP and start check/calling these boards we're very easy to play against.

      Congrats on your Gold sub, OP. If you really study that material and continue to post like this, you will no question begin to crush 10NL.

      There's an ebb and flow, a reaction and overreaction, to everything in this game. Cbetting has toned down significantly with ranges and frequencies becoming far more balanced over the last couple of years. Naturally, this has led to many players under cbetting in many situations and working themselves into terrible reverse implied odds situations on the turn and river.

      On this play, you're spot on, IMO. Cbet this flop and more than likely take it down there. The worst thing that happens is you face resistance which clearly narrows ranges and makes a future lay down very easy.
