      First time at the site. Having read the basic large stack strategy here I decided to aim to follow it to the letter and see what happens. This looks like a case of meeting strong resistance in the case of multiple flush/straight draws. A voice telles me he might be bluffing, but I am probably perceived as an ultratight rock at this stage - so I figure he has something better than me.

      Hello CountBrass,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Add to full stack if you are playing BSS. :)

      Also while the board is so draw-heavy on flop I'd even consider betting it bigger ~$0,24.

      About the hand I'd still go for a 2nd barrel to protect our hand. There are just so many hands which may pay you like any FD/Any Jx/even a SD. As played it's kinda cruel that he shoves like this. While he seems to be even rather loose passive player I might also go for a crying fold while haven't invested much into the pot.

      Best regards.
