      The main decision is on the Flop and Turn. Should we raise the Flop? He pots it so he looks really strong (like an overpair). Maybe this might want to make us more inclined to raise the Flop right away.

      but my standard is to call Flop with the intention of raising most turns. I think that allows him to hit some high cards on the Turn and bluff or value bet so we extract more value.

      As played I'm not too sure how much i like your turn raise. you are basically over-repping your hand (you rep a flush by taking this line) so I'm not sure whether you get too much value from worse hands. Of course if he's a bad calling station then it seems ok to me.

      But I probably just call Turn, and call halfpot bets on the River. I will raise bets that are <half pot.
