      I think folding the flop is a mistake. His range consists of a lot of small cards and he could have flopped the nuts, he could also be doing it with a lot of draws. Calling would be best, right?

      Hey trzewia,

      Preflop iso-raise is good.

      Think flop bet/fold is totally fine here. Not sure what kind of sample this guys AF is over but preflop open-limp is usually an indication opponent is passive, which means he is going to be raising mainly better hands along with draws that have a ton of equity vs you.

      Only time I would continue vs flop raise here is if I had history that opponent had been stacking off with junk postflop.
