      Hello joeldowey123,

      Pretty much turning your hand into bluff. Therefore I'd rather prefer to Call and re-evaluate it on turn.

      But of course overall it ain't really a big mistake to raise it and get value from overcards. But of course it's very likely that he ain't gonna continue with worse holdings.

      Best regards.

      For me the raise was also protection! If I call and a K or something shows up o have no idea where I am in the hand anymore.
