      On the flop, I thought villain held a lot of overcards so I thought I wanted to let him bluf or improve on later streets. Is it better to protect vs possible straight draws and get it in on the flop vs pocket pairs?

      Well, the board is quite drawy on the flop, and it is hard to put him on 88 or x7 here. I think you should go broke on the turn to at least keep his draws in the hand and avoid isolating yourself against his stronger hands on the flop. If he is quite aggressive, your line is fine, but you get into ugly spots in the river when draws (like in this case) hit and he shows - I think as played, you have to make a tough fold.

      Jep, 3betting flop or raising turn is probably better. Don't know if the river is a fold though, I think he might be shoving Ax or diamonds there as well. Depends on the player I guess.

      I would shove turn, since there are 2 flushdraws out, you´re not folding blank river, so better get all-in than any scare card would come
