      Calling the flop is fine he's giving you immediate odds to draw to your flush.

      Calling the turn is out of the question, you have a flushdraw with one card to come on a paired board, it's worthless unless you know he's aggressive enough for your A-high to be good there, which it probably isn't at these stakes, don't hero call there.

      Try and c-bet bigger on the if you're going to bet at all, unless you are specifically looking to induce a raise to shove over the top with the draw. A 1/3 bet just shows weakness to most opponents and you need to be able to react correctly to that.

      Either c-bet/shove or check/shove on him in that spot, it's unlikely he has either a set or a made flush, so if he wants to get all-in with a worse draw it's fine by you. Even if he has a made flush or a set you still have decent equity, but you need to get the money in on the flop with two cards left to come.

      Hope it helps.

      first of all thanks for advises.

      So am I understand correctly, here the best move would be a Check at Flop and if he raises a moderate, I push all-in?

      I was thinking he has a big pocket pair TT+ this is why he is prtecting so strong.
