      Hey, there! :)

      Villain is VPIP/PFR/AF 16.7 / 11.1 / 3.0 over 118 hands, I was sure he hit a set or had a strong overpair he wanted to get value from.

      What about my play? - imo I should re-raise flop. Just question: should I get it in on the flop if he 3bet shoves on me?

      What's your approach in kinda situation vs that pretty tight opponent?

      My default play is to fold this preflop. You aren't getting much of a discount from the small blind, and your position is bad. You won't know whether one pair is good, and you will have trouble getting paid off while you often end up with a bluff-catcher.

      A flush draw and two overcards is a strong hand, but your opponent has also shown strength by making a continuation bet in a multiway pot. If you aren't sure whether you can call a 3-bet, this suggests that raising is inefficient. I would not try to push him off of an overpair. You have enough equity to call, and hope of implied odds. I would like a check-raise or bet/3-bet line better if you were heads-up on the flop.

      As pzhon said preflop is very close. I'd personally either 3-bet or fold this hand given the players involved. Given the limit I think folding is the best play.
