Interesting hand I played. Probably should have c/c the flop and let him barrel away, but as it played;

Is this generally a snap call vs. a reshove on the flop?

Just want to know in case I get in a similar situation in the future.

I pokerstoved some hand ranges he could have, and it said I have ~60% equity against overpairs with a club in it.

Against a flopped flush im drawing dead, which is obviously part of his range.

Is this a profitable call?

With zero reads or history against villain, I'd assume a stronger raising range. If that is the case there aren't a whole lot of flopped flushes he can have. AKs, AQs maybe? Other than that your often going to be looking at AKo with one club, an overpair with one club, or a set. Didn't check the odds, but should be ahead if this is the case?

I don't see any point in slowplaying your straight on flop. If you think your hand is ahead, just go ahead and make him pay. No good reason to let him set the drawing price.

Also hope you have taken some notes on that guy, huge mistakes made that hand by villain.

If his range for raising is all sets, all overpairs, and all reasonable flopped flushes (AXcc, KTcc+, QTcc+, JcTc, 7c6c) plus certain nut flush draws (AcJx+) then I've got you on 57.35%.
Stacking off looks good to me.
I think a lot of players would overplay QQ+ here, but if we remove overpairs from his shoving range, then you're down to 41%.

It kind of depends on how loose/tight this guy is pre-flop. If he routinely calls in position pre-flop with Axs (down to A2s) and hands like QTs, but doesn't call pre with offsuit aces, then there are a lot more made flushes in his range.

Thanks for responses.

It was zoom and didn't have many hands on him. I think his flatting range is better orientated to this board rather than his 3bet range. I doubt he has a set here as most players would probably set mine a MP raise.

Put his range which he would 3bet pre and get it in post flop as;

QQ+, JcJx, TcTx, AcKc, AcQc, AcJc, AcKx, AxKc, AcQx, AxQc

Which came to 64.095% equity. This is just my guess though

Obviously what he called with is probably the bottom of his range.

Any comments are appreciated.

Hi birdayy,

These guys have already said it. Basically, never slowplay this situation as there are so many turn cards that kill your action. And I would not consider folding to his 3b jam unless he was very nitty and could only be expected to stack flushes here.
