      Re-raise. I wouldn't want to see a spade, an 8 or a 10 that can kill the action on the river.

      exactly

      there can be some arguments about raising pf.

      I know that the raise in this case is for protection and for getting money in the pot if blocking card appears on the river.

      However, we know the general rule according to which never go broke in unraised flop unless you have monster (which is my case). But if we assume that also villain assumes this rule, then it is very hard for him to call my reraise. He might e.g. fold top pair or two pair. And flush draw and straight draw is rarely played so agressivelly that it would justify the raise in unraised pot (either it is played pasivelly and we lead out betting with flush draw if we play it agressivelly in unraised pot).

      So, another question: Which hands could call my raise to $15?

      I'm almost sure a half stack donk doesn't know he isn't supposed to get broke in an unraised pot and he would probably stack off with lower straigth, two pairs or sets.
