This is just a cooler IMO.

Villain has only one hand that is beating you. I feel that he would play flopped sets and the nut flush draw (maybe with a pair/straight draw) the same way.

Unlucky!

Hi,

Firstly, I prefer to raise or fold preflop. If P4 is limp/folding or limp/calling and playing fit or fold, then I like raising to isolate him. If no reads, folding is fine.

On the flop I love the raise, slow playing this type of spot is a big no-no as so many cards can kill our action. The villain reraises. I think your shove is fine at this point. We have the 2nd nuts, so the question is will the villain only do this with the nuts and nothing else? No reads are provided (so fold preflop), but in general I think players can show up with 2 pairs, 99/TT, combo draws like AhJh/Jh9h, etc as well so getting it in is ok.
