      1. I don't know why you raise with this hand.
      2. After raise cbet would be ok i guess on that board. After he reraises it's a fold, you don't get implied because he's shorstacked.

      especially against a shortie very easy fold preflop. I would never raisr that unless my friend in the BB has a fold to steal of 90%+. Playability sucks and you get floatet to often. as played it seems you are always putting it in behind against a Jack and i dont think you have nough fold equity. Since its nut a flushdraw with at least one overcard Im folding there. I mean even with his shitty hand he was favorite.
      cbet might induce him to bluff, its to small.
