      I'll 3bet it bigger on the flop, due to being OOP. I don't want to encourage him to call it, but rather to shove over or fold. I'll make it like $22.

      As played, I think you can c/f that turn. Your flop line is either a real monster or a FD. If he shoves there, he has a little something =)

      When he raises that flop he probably has a flushdraw, an unlikely set, T9, maybe some weird combodraw with 8s7s, or sometimes an overpair if he flatted that preflop. Imo you can't stack an overpair on a board that ugly if he even has them, you want to protect against a flushdraw but you're toast against all the other made hands he might raise with.

      I don't mind your line except i would bet the flop bigger, but because the stack sizes are somewhat ugly on the turn as it is, i might explore a bet/call flop looking for a safe turn, as our equity will change drastically at that point. If the turn isn't a spade i'd probably bet/call again, in case he wants to stack off with his draws at this point, it's probably not worth than stacking off on the flop. On a spade turn i'd check and if he bets i think i can feel good giving it up. I might feel bad bet/calling a 6 or a J turn tho, as he may have 8x.

      As played it's a check/fold on the spade turn. On a non-spade turn i'd just shove it in, i think he would have shoved the flop for protection with most of the made hands that beat us, so that leaves draws which we can't allow to a check back to.

      Hope it helps.
