      I wanted to get it in on the flop since draw equity is highest on the flop, but after the raise I knew he had top pair and pot odds priced me in.

      Is it better to call the raise and play passively by odds on the turn?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      to bad go broke with only 10 outs (1 out is bdSd)

      cbet about 0.3 and fold, because you will not get much value from midstack villain even if you get ur flush on turn

      I wouldn't shove over the check/raise unless BB is being especially aggressive on flops. Would normally bet/fold or bet/call depending on raise sizing. You can't fold here to the minraise since you get almost direct odds. It doesn't matter if you have zero implied odds.

      He's quite short so it's ok to go broke with this, but you should have either re-raised him all in as a 3bet or just called his re-raise.

      This. Don't mix up overcards + nut flushdraws with naked nut flushdraws. In the first case you're flipping with any pair and still only a 2:1 dog against a set, in the second case you're a 2:1 dog against any hand that stacks off. I'd just call the minraise in position in this hand.


      Hope it helps.
