      I don't know if mathematically it is the right play, but I'd opt to push on his miniraise. I've seen this a lot at NL10, and it just reaks of him hitting the straight. If so, you're likely to get a call.

      At higher limits I'd be more inclined to smooth-call, as there's a greater possibility of him slow-playing the nuts here, but at this limit I push.

      If he has more of a stack I think you need to call only as it reeks like a better flush......but since he only has what $3 and the pot is $7 I think you should think about shoving as there are allot of hands that will have to call for those odds and he cannot come over the top anyways.

      In a 3-handed game, you typically have a monster. I think I'd also shove for value here.
