      Nice hand, well played. I might 3bet the flop.

      With 100bb I wouldn´t hesitate getting all-in with top set on 3-way flush.
      You're sometimes ahead, sometimes you're flipping against oesfd, sometimes are way ahead against lower set or two pair
      Here you're smt like 160bb deep, that would change a little things.
      You can take that line by bet/call, flop, likely c/c turn if there hasn't gone any flush, but against aggressive players I'd choose bet/3-bet and then call shove.
      they would get there all-in with lower set and two pair, also sometimes with A high flushdraws, so I don't give them free cards and they can shove their set or weaker hands, also draws.

      I think these are one of those funny situations where even if a blank falls on the turn your equity against his range is still lower than on the flop, so if you are willing to go broke on blank turn then i prefer to get it in on the flop.
