    My opinion (fwiw) is when he raises on the turn he represents two pair, set or straight. You still have a one in four chance of making nut flush and a 5 gives you a straight. A nine gives you two pair but that may be beat anyway so let’s not count those outs. So you have 9 spades and maybe a couple of 5’s as outs. 9/46 maybe 10/46 maybe even 11/46 is your expectation of hitting an out. Despite the fact that you were a preflop favorite and a huge favorite on the flop, the turn bet changes his range. You are now an underdog. If you spike a spade on the river you may get him to call a big river bet so s call on the turn seems better. Look at the hand in reverse. He called a big flop bet. Your turn bet was huge too yet he raised you. What did you think he had at that point. 55 makes sense to call preflop and take a shot of calling your c bet. The turn is a very straighty card. I would have checked back the turn see the river for free or if you prefer a more aggressive line to get him to fold out 66+ bet 1/3 pot. When he raises you, that’s a red flag in my book. I would put him on 33 or 55 at that point. Call don’t shove all in.

    By the way, it is easier after the fact to see the hand play out. In the heat of the battle other factors can cloud the thinking. It is player dependent. What history you have with this player , is the player loose or tight, aggressive or passive. Things like that. If you think he is bluffing you to fold out your ace maybe that warrants a shove. Thing is he called 3/4 c bet. He has more than air.
