Should I just be folding to the reraise? No reads on the villains as only 5 ish hands on each, nothing to suggest craziness or extreme nittiness.

Hi Prof,

Preflop call in position I like on this depth of money. On the flop I would always call here for the raise to $3.30. Our 2nd nut draw is too strong to fold as there's excellent implied odds. I don't like raising as a semi-bluff however because there rates to be little "bluff" component, presumably to raise the flop with deep stacks our opponent could be pretty strong. So call and if we make our flush he will be suspicious of it for sure, but is probably going to have to pay us off some if he is in fact strong.

On the turn I think it's ok to fold here. He's still firing a strong barrel after the board pairs which is concerning as we could be drawing dead some of the time now, we only have 1 card to come, and the pot will be bloated to a point where if we improve to the best hand we might not get paid off reasonably, but if we improve and it's not the best hand we will have to pay him off, so there's some measure of reverse implied odds now.
