      Hello Smashie,

      Nope, we can't really fold there, since the flush is also backdoor on flop and it's rare situation, although his line is pretty strong but I expect to take such lines also with some straights, therefore I'd also Call. Nice hand! Although you could raise it bigger on turn, ~$3.

      Best regards.
