      SB ($7.15)
      BB ($15.38)
      UTG ($16.27)
      UTG+1 ($10.15)

      MP2 ($4.60)
      Hero (MP3) ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J:diamond: , J:heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 bets $0.40, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.40, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.70, UTG+1 calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($2.15) 5:club: , 9:club: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $1.20, BB raises to $5.75, 1 fold, Hero=????

      Villain showed strength preflop, and more with the check/raise despite the wet board. Without a read, is this an easy fold?

      without any stats or notes, it's difficult too know what to do on this flop.
      Maybe he has flush draw and it's better to call .
      His very small raise preflop could be sign of strength.
      If he's a loose player, easy call.

      I think you can fold there, players tend to have a lot of times overpair and you basically only beat there TT and some flushdraws
