      Yes, "sick" would be a very polite way of putting it! Could I possibly fold though?

      well, it could be argued that someone could easily be limping with 55/67s/67o even

      however i wouldn't be surprised to see 88-, random A:sx also (i'd totally shove this flop with A:s6 myself) and maybe even some random 8:s7 or 6:s5 or something worse even
      intuition is that you shouldn't fold, the only hand that you reeaaally don't want to see here is 55. against everything else you're either way ahead or have fine equity

      Since it is NL5 and zoom I would just say "cooler" tbh, btw +1 to tomaloc. He hits the nail on the head.

      However, I really don't like the min raise on the flop. I would make a pot sized raise on such a draw heavy board, something like 0.60 (current pot + 2* opp's bet)

      Remember we need to increase the size of the pot in order to get the money in on future streets or ideally on the flop. It's not a case of do we want to be all in, rather how to get all in.

      Hello hooley01,

      Raise the flop bigger, we want to protect our hand not give him correct odds to draw.

      And as played vs BTN raise I would just lay it down, a lot of combos which are straights beat us and meanwhile we don't beat that many hands.

      Best Regards.
