      On the flop, I would rather bet call, or check call, I don't think there's much point raising.

      Also I wouldn't call it a big draw, you have a reasonably low flush draw, which can be beaten by higher flushes quite easily, and a gunshot, which isn't all that powerful.

      With a marginal drawing hand like this I would like to see the turn and the river as cheap as possible.

      I think you can c/r flop, since that would fold out Ax hands.
      3-bet on the river is marguinal. I´d better like b/c, since he is almost never raising there unless he has flush.
