Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Everyone,

i was a little unsure weather i did the right thing in this spot on a scary looking board for my hand.

The villian here has stats of 25/13 over only 17 hands,i also dont have info on how wide they call 3bets.

I 3bet big here for value and to thin the field also.
The villian calls and i've set up a nice low stack to pot ratio.

Now i thought for a while when this flop came down,can i check and let him bet off over pairs and flush draws,or should i lead?
As you can see i decided to lead,i felt like the villian can be shoving overpairs and big heart draws here.

I get called and the turn doesnt change anything,is it profitable to get the rest of the money in here on the turn? their flat on the flop is concerning given i think they would have shoved worse on the flop.

Thanks Again

Hi again Nashy,

Spookily, I just looked at a hand almost identical to this one (http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/for...K-on-wet-board has the same KsKd in a 3-bet pot, and a low flop of all hearts).
It'a a tricky spot for sure.
In this hand, villain just flats the c-bet. He could be trapping with a made flush, or wants to see a safe card for his set, but most of the time I think he has an overpair with no heart draw, or he has the Ah but isn't comfortable raising with the NFD. So we're targetting hands like TT that may have a heart and may not.
Villain has less than a PSB on the turn, so I think you can get it in here for value, hoping to get looked up by JJ-99 and AhXx if he just called with the draw. You're not a huge favourite against villain's continuance range, but this is still a value shove that will be called by worse. You certainly can't give villain a cheap or free card if he does have a heart.
Be sure to make a note on how villain played his hand here (e.g. "flatted with set on mono" or "flatted flopped nut flush"), because he's likely to play the same in the next situation like this.
