      BU - 18/14/1.7/280, ATS 30%, fold to 3bet 4/7

      Is it right to push on the turn? I still need to protect vs one card flush-draws, and I have full house outs against a made flush
      How to play on the turn if I don't hit trips?

      It's fine, I'd play it the same way regardless of whether we turn trips or not. It's a 3-bet pot and villain, tho he looks to be on the tight side, is apparently calling a bit too much including in 3-bet pots, so it's conceivable for him to show up with worse top pairs that he won't fold.

      Since we also would hate a 4th spade coming in and we gain nothing from him by checking the turn since he won't show up with many worse hands that he'll bet at us when checked to, there is no play but jamming.

      Most people would raise a set on the flop so we're only behind if he happened to flop a flush in a 3-bet pot, not enough for us to get scared.

      Hope it helps.
