      PF: Standard raise

      Flop: I raise for value vs overcards, some FDs. When he raises me around 3x, I am actually quite suspicious. The hands he can raise me are probably semibluffs like spade draw, a 56 and overcards. I think overpairs like QQ-AA will 3-bet PF and TT-JJ might call/raise.

      I'd wanted to call one street and check down. But I think once he raises, he probably will fire 1 or 2 more streets which I'd rather not take e risk of calling.

      Preflop is fine.

      Bet/folding the flop looks standard here.
      Even against the draws we are flipping and if we call we are going to have a hard time on the turn, plus he could easily has 7x/44 in his range as well.
