      Every draw that called you on the flop has now completed.
      So he's not bluffing his busted draws.

      You can only hope to be up against JT or some random J.

      I think a better line there would have been to block bet. If you get reraised, you know you're beat. If he just calls, you might get a cheaper showdown. I'd blockbet for about 1/3 of the pot.


      As played, you have to call. The pot is too big for you to fold your that hand.

      hi
      the best option here is to bet . he will check a lot of worse hands behind and you will lose value and pay his better hands .
      block bet 0.5 and fold to a raise
