      NEVER start to raise+call 3-bet on this kind of board on micro levels. People don't balance their hand here, they play it rather straight forward. He has a flush there, definitely, so I'd go raise/fold here. And I'd make that raise for protection against hands like A :diamond: 5x

      I can see him donking draws and Kx and maybe other pairs as well.

      I don't mind raising but I'd make it a bit bigger. I'd also only raise if I'm willing to go with the hand.

      When it comes to deciding if we are going to put all the money in we have to look back at what type of villain he is and what we saw of him. There are fish that would bluff/semi-bluff here but some would only 3-bet for value and rarely as a bluff.
      If we are not sure we can just call and play safe turns.
