No i said (as quoted below) that it would be a strange line for any flush but the nut flush to take (and it would make perfect sense for the nut flush).
This would also be a very strange line for a flopped flush, unless he flopped the nut flush.
If villain (or hero now) flopped a smaller flush, it would make no sense to flat call the flop...you would come way over the top. The nut flush, however, is the only hand that was really threatening, and it was the only flush that would take that line, simply because you can afford to extract value when you flop the nuts obviously.
Incredibly hard lay down imo, because as i said the only flush he should probably be scared of is the nut flush, which isn't that likely. But since you have it he loses almost all his outs...vs a smaller flopped flush he would have like 39% equity, which is auto shove given pot odds
. vs Jx it would be kinda hard to tell (tho having all 4 Js out there is unlikely) since JT is about the only JT he beats.
And chuck, i don't think fold equity means your hand is a bluff. Somebody could easily be making that play with the nut flush draw and top pair or something, which you have beat, but would rather he fold and not get a chance to draw out on you. I was just making the point that if he shoved, he was getting called so he would have to be ahead.
