      A flop raise here is fine, however I don't think i'd just shove 97bb into a 30bb pot, we're cold 3betting about 3 times the pot here. Even to fish that indicates a massive amount of strength and we will fold out even some overpairs (And it's not often that happens on NL5), a smaller raise would be preferable, maybe something like $1.30 would probably be my choice :)
