      Tight is Right

      I'm a tight player anyway I would have thrown the 97s in the muck after a raise Pre-flop.
      But I think for some styles it is ok to take a flop in position but this requires stronger post flop skills than I have any claim to.

      On that note I'll leave the post flop analysis to stronger players and better theorists.

        Fold pre. 97s isn't a profitable call pre-flop on the button at 6-max. Even a suited connector like JTs is barely break-even, so just dump it.
        As played, you got a monster draw on the flop, with a pair and a flush draw. I would usually raise and stack off when heads up, as you have a ton of equity against one pair hands, and can get easy folds from c-bets with air. When you call and the SB check-raises the field though, he has you in bad shape, since he nearly always has a set.
        I think you have to call, as you still have outs to a winning flush (although your number of outs will decline on the turn) and some implied odds. Since you made the flush on the turn, betting to get value from the set is clear, but you have to give up if the river pairs the board, since villain will only bet with full houses.

          What arty says +1

          Just to add that if CO is fish, you can widen your calling range IP a lot. He might play for stacks with any TP or OP. But here no information is given, so fold. This comment also should be seen in the light that CO usually has no strong range, so there is no point of making big hand as he will not play against you for stacks with something like KTo, but he would fold it many times if you 3b
