      Flop I Cbet he calls, now I hit a flush draw with two overcards, so I semi-bluff but should I have fold to his re-raise?

      Hello samlar,

      Preflop: I'd 3bet just for value. No point to just Call here with so strong hand against his range.

      As played
      Flop: We didn't show any aggression preflop then why are we doing it now? I'd just Check/Fold since the opponent might be way too loose, no information on him as you didn't write. And NL5 opponent are kinda loose, they might even Call you with just Kx type of hands. And this flop is for donking really bad.

      As played if the flop was donked
      Turn: I don't really like to 2nd barrel into unknown fishy players, I'd just Check and take the odds if he bets again. Definitely such a card if pretty good card for a 2nd barrel but we have to know the opponent also, that he is capable of laying down his smaller pairs. As played you can take the odds and reevaluate river but it will be hard to extract value, so sometimes I might even just fold directly right there to avoid further mistakes. For example if he hit the K we will never know where we stand with just one pair.

      Best regards.
