OTF can i raise or 3bet or 5bet to allin here?
or when deepstacked like this, is it better to just call to see if i hit my straightflush or set? cuz my 6high-flush wont be good against overpairs (thats what he most likely haz here, cuz he reraised preflop)

I think this spot is pretty villain dependent.

I think he preflop 3Bet and raising that flop range is heavily weighted towards overpairs (possibly with a club) or AK/AQ with a club. I don't think your typical 5NL opponent is folding any of those holdings even if you shoved. Therefore I like the call OTF

Against an opponent capable of folding no-club overpairs to resistance, I might be tempted to raise the flop and fire again on the turn. But you'd have to have good reads to this effect.

However I don't really like the call on the river. I don't see 66 ever being the best hand when he bets the river despite a potential scare card for overpairs turning up. I think just folding is best.

FWIW I don't think a river raise is any good, even against a TAG regular because it's difficult for you to represent a 5 when calling a PF 3Bet and full houses/flushes don't make sense with how you played the other streets.
