      Push in my opinion. You probably have the best Hand on the Flop there and plenty of outs if not (you make your FH every third Hand). If he has a st8flushdraw you will win 6 of 10 hands

      Just agree to Slannes H.
      You need to push this flop. Got the FH outs and need to see a percentage of at least 15% of his raise as a pure bluff at such a dangerous board and your oversized bet, just obvious you liked to get him out.
