      If SB is very loose aggro I'd just fold the flop. We're getting really good odds but really we don't have much to hope for with a tainted gutshot and two tainted overs. If he's usually tight, meaning he has KK+ very often when he min3bet, i don't mind calling with implieds since we'll get his stack the times we hit a T.

      As played on the turn just fold, our flushdraw might not even be good if he has the Ad and assuming we get his stack every time we're still not getting odds to draw to the 2nd nutflush.

      Try not to get sucked into these spots where it's cheap at first so you call, then it looks like you improved so you continue even tho really not much has changed and it's a clear fold. If you don't have a good reason for putting money in the pot on each street, just don't. You'll give up a some small edges sometimes, but you'll leak a lot less money overall until you get better at exploiting these edges.

      Hope it helps.
