      I am probably folding to his reraise on flop against two opponents, with one opponent I would consider shoving all in. Calling generally isnt wise unless you are hoping to improve your hand. In this case your opponents have more chance of improving than you - by calling in a tough situation you are only making it even tougher on the next street.

      Hero has only 50bb to begin with, I'd go all in against the raise on the flop. Opponent could easily be on a combodraw or a weaker overpair and eager to get it in on the flop. If he is donk enough he could show up with a hand like J9 as well. At the looks of it you were beaten by what ever draw he could have by the turn or river but that's just bad luck. After calling the flop I see no way of folding the turn.

      When someone c/r in FR it is usually set :)
      So b/f flop against passive players.

      Its not only the check-raise flop line, but the villain also played call-call preflop. That screams "HI I HAVE SMALL POCKETS AND IM SET MINING OKAY". While he barely had playable set-mine odds on you ($4.66 vs 30c @ 15-1) the button called in front of him with an effective stack of $10.40.

      Definate bet-fold flop.
