And even if you jam here, all you are doing is losing equity in the hand. Because villians check/jamming range is much weaker than his jam calling range for 2/3 the pot.
meh maybe it'd be more profitable to bet small, call any jam and shove any turn brick. I still don't agree with you that worse hands will check call a flop jam, but will check raise a bet with worse, but I do understand why you think that. Maybe it's because I've only played the lowest limits for a very long time and have kind of adapted plays like these based off player type. My first step thinking in this position is; no way he flopped the flush HU, I'm usually ahead here and I should jam to win the now dead money, and I should dangle the stick in front of fishier types with single heart hands who might be willing to get it in bad. I think this is probably a fishy way of looking at this situation and maybe I've been lucky in the past in this spot but idk. I think that in a game where most of the players play with their guts, it'd be very hard for a short stack to check fold hands like QcXh, Ah8x, lower pocket pairs with one being hearts on this flop.

I'll stick with my more conservative option of betting flop, calling any jam and gii on brick turn. I also fully believe that hero betting 3x pre could have ended the hand, instead of giving villain really good odds to call.

Not trying to be a dick here, but it is hard to give you any credibility when you are saying stuff like "no way he flopped the flush HU" and keep referencing player types about +EV situations.
