      I'd appreciate a little help on this one, had no idea how to handle it. I knew he had a full house, just wasn't sure if he'd call with a shove with it.

      Hey!

      1st of all: Bet the flop. There's so much value to be had here. There's no reason whatsoever for checking. He calls flush draws, A high, str8 draws, Tx and whatnot.

      Just pot it and keep on betting till the river. Don't expect your opponent to bet. Most people make the mistake of calling too much and not betting too much. And in order to exploit that, we value bet ;-)

      As played, definitely ship it on the river. He's show decent strength by betting 2 times and he never folds Tx. =)

      Cheers!
