      Preflop: I think calling becomes way less favourable when he opens to 4BB. I would consider the option of squeezing here since there is so much dead money. Squeezing here to 14-16 bb seems fine.

      Flop: He bets 90% of the pot. That says a lot about his strength. I also think the nut flush draw is too weak to play for stacks, but too strong to fold. And I would never raise here if I am not prepared to play for stacks here. If we had something like 7d8d I think if we raise and get jammed, I'm really fine with folding it cos it's merely a weak flush draw. But it is not good to raise/fold with the nut flush draw cos it's such a valuable and strong hand.

      In short, just c/c here on the Flop as played, and you should think about squeezing preflop.
