      Bet-fold is good here. Not many things can check-raise that turn that dont have you in a world of hurt.

      In fact by not raising you on the flop BB gave you a way to escape the set mine. I would have gone all-in with AA on that flop but bet-folded the turn.

      If you had the A :diamond: you would have had the correct line in bet-shoving.

      Villain here played his 3s horribly. Just unfortunate that he was luckier than you.

      Bet flop bigger.
      B/f turn is a standart line when the flush also completes, as well as giving him ways of having two pair.
      He almost never does that with a hand, that doesnt have you beat.
