      He limp/calls my raise and he raises directly all in with an overbet on the flop. He is unknown , but the board was very drawy , so i figured he might be doing that with a draw. Fold there is better?

      I'd fold against an unknown. Maybe I fold the best hand sometimes, but what kind of hands he will push here? At best it's 99, but often he will push a strong draw which has good equity (e.g., FD + 2 overcards) and sometimes you will see a stupid slowplay with high pockets or find yourself behind against a set (which pushes hoping that you have an overpair and call...). If I have a read on that guy, I might change my decision, but against an unknown I prefer the low variance game and stack him in a better situation.
