      UTG is 65/27 passive whale.

      CO is 21/17/10.9 overly aggressive reg who 3-bets/raises far too much, but we only have 692 hands and no sample of his turn raising behavior (though I guess this situation is kind of unique).

      I lead flop since I want to protect my hand and don't mind taking pot here -- any non club turn is bad for us so we want to charge them in advance. No idea what either of them has here, but for CO I'd say its weighted towards suited connector types 65s/76s/87s/98s and low suited Qx/Kx.

      On the turn we hit flush, whale calls and CO puts in a fairly large raise. Now at this point do we think that he is still raising 55/88? Maybe he overplays T8s or something but I think he must know I would not lead the turn again with weak hands. To me he seems heavily weighted towards better flushes here, given his pre-flop range for over limping.

      What is your action in this spot?

      I think CO could raise with sets straight better flush, 2 pair and might be willing to go broke with it so I think I'll raise over for value. His shorter stack suggests a wider range than just flushes.

      If he has the flush then he's gonna get paid off.
