      n.folding is not an option here.
      you got a strong overpair + 3rd flush draw, so folding is far too weak.

      reraising to something like 20$ comiits you to the pot if he shoves
      20$+50$+5,25$=75,25 and you need to call 30$ so 2,5:1 odds

      so you need something like 28% equity and its hartds to believe hes never shoving nutflushdraw or JJ TT with a club here. so i gues by reraising you commit yourself to a shove which is not to happy in such a deep stack spot.
      altrhough depending on his range you can do this

      you have a flip. but hard to imagine hes going broke with the weaker hand of his range.

      so i like calling here.
      true there might be troublesome cards on the turn and its not easy to reevaluate the turn.so keerp his bluffs and weaker made hands in and try to slow down might be a good option here as well.
      the better you know him the easier it gets to evaluate trhe turn

      Hello dooleslovs,

      I'd most likely still Call vs the min-raise and reevaluate the further actions. He might even have just A/some PPs in the raising range and maybe even sometimes pure bluffs which would most likely calm down in 3bet pot and being so deep on turn.

      Best Regards.
