I'd have gone for a check-raise here. As you've played it though, 3-bet push.

Well, i'm certainly not laying this down. I think I'm pushing this everytime. If you call, I don't think you're getting paid off if you hit your flush. You're ahead of everything but J9, 44, 99, JJ, and you have tons of FE. Push this shtuff.

If you are going to fold vs. resistance with 2nd pair and 4 to a flush, then you need to start folding these hands pre-flop. Otherwise you are hoping to flop made hands, and that doesn't happen enough for you to be profitable.

I'm not sure I like a checkraise. If he calls your checkraise, whats your play on the turn if you miss everything? I prefer to get it all in on the flop if i can.

Why the tone? I didn't show hero's action. I'm aware of my pot equity here. The question is, do I have enough FE to make this worthwhile often enough?

A) No tone, real, implied, imagined or otherwise.
B) Reply was not to OP, but to responder who said fold.

spot on.

I default to push - but might soft play if I sense my FE dropping like the rain has been lately...

No way I'm folding.

gotta say that even a weak-tightie newbie like myself would push as fast as I could.
