      i would call the reraise on the flop... with the disadvantage that i don't see how fast he wants his money in... normally i would suggest i have 15 undiscounted outs with any ace and queen being a weak out... due to the flop action i might be more worried about a set or a flopped straight (which i wouldn't worry that much about if i just call the raise)

      on this level there are also a number of players who would play an overpair to the board very aggressively (and my weak outs might also be good against that) so we have a lot of options if we called on the flop...

      since we reraised (which is also fine i think) and get pushed the pot odds to make the flush are enough to have a solid call

      btw: very nice collection of sample hands... i hope i don't write too much bullshit^^now that i try hand evaluation

      Depending on what kind of player is he, does his play look like a set mining or more like trapping with OP. Vs 44+ it's an easy push but against an set it's harder. Sometimes I just Call and reevaluate turn, with that we save some money but I think it ain't wrong to push on flop if it's vs unknown.

      Best regards,

      I think one cool line is to call his c/r and shove a lot of turn cards or call if you hit your flush- because then he can lead out with complete bluffs or draws on the turn and now he´d likely would fold to your turn shove.
      If you like, you can also 3-bet flop and get there money all-in- just don´t think you´re ahead there too oftne, once you get money all-in.
