      Hey Philipvw

      well, situation is very opponent dependant
      but in general, i prefer to have tighter postflop standarts in unraised pots

      playing for stack (in unraised pot) with bottom 2pairs seems marginal

      The board is extremly drawy here
      it looks like your opponent is trying to protect his strong made hand (set (less likely), str8 or combo tp+fd, tp+gs), because his reraise is way too big (almost 5.5x)
      I would assume that he has you beat fairly often

      however, giving up on the flop is a bit weak, so I would likely call
      and check turn
      if he keeps betting big, i would give up

      Fold preflop.

      As played, vs. a very aggressive player, I reraise the flop and get it in; vs. a passive one I'd fold to his raise.
