      I have two main questions about the hand:

      1. Should I raise flop to protect? I put the big stack on some kind of K or maybe mid-pair, so I don't want to scare him off.
      2. Am I strong enough to call the turn shove?

      1) you should mostly raise, just to protect your equity against all the draws that he might have on that board, starting with 78 and ending flushdraws. I think 8$ raise should be enough to then shove none spade turn
      2) I´d call turn, since he can shove worse hands and if he has there straight I don´t see him overbet shoving
