    Based on the charts and then wanting to be a little tighter multi-way this could be a fold pre. Heads up it could be a good polar 3b.

    I think I’d be more inclined to play my non paired heart draws this way on the turn. With this hand I think I’d check and let villain bluff.

      I wanted to deny villians equity , if a 6-T, Q-A folds great result

      i did not think my 4 will be good enough often enough vs 2 when showdown on river

      with my flush draw i had a 18% discount on how often my overbet needs to work on turn

      There's merit to that, but I don't think you need to overbet to get those hands to fold. In my mind, the only hands an overbet folds out that say 2/3 pot doesn't are 5x, 66-TT and maybe middling flush draws like T9hh or QThh. I'd probably bet 800-900 if I did want to bet here.

    I'd say it's a 3b. Against a LJ raise HU, 43s is a bluff 3b, so with the extra dead money, I think I'd 3b bluff.
