Villain is 19/14/3 over 100 hands, seems pretty taggy. AF of 1.3. I don't think he reraises the turn with anything other than a strong flush, MAYBE a set. I think this is a call, c/f river? Especially when board pairs. I really hate it when I am unable to get away from situations like these where I have a very strong hand but feel I am beat but call anyway.

Hey PocketOnes,

preflop calling seems very good closing the action with this nice multiway hand.

OTF you could lead, x/c or even x/r. I think I like check/raising or leading best as the profitability of check/calling depends so much on villain's range and betsize (it's small enough here to make calling profitable I guess). Also it's tougher to extract value OOP when you make your hand as leading or check/raising when the flush hits looks so strong.

As played I think you can strongly argue folding river. As it was a multiway pot and villain bet flop into the two of you plus raised your strong turnlead his range may be very strong. As the PFR he will probably also have a lot more better flush combos with broadway cards in them.
