      There is an over card on board, and the board is straight and flush drawy. You don't have hearts in your hand.

      It is a fold after his raise, imo.

      I have had such situations as well but you have to manage to fold such dumb situations, most of the time you just drop the money into nothing. But lets see what judges advice :)

      You need 22% equity here to call. It's bloody little. Since you have middle pair and one overcard, I think it's possible, but shouldn't be your standard play here. You have only 20% equity against some random queen and even less against two pair or a set. But there're flush and straight draws on the board, and he might be semi-bluffing here with something close to suited connector. At least I think he might.

      If you think he's capable of something like that, call. If you have serious doubts about that, fold.
