      Hero folds unless he has a reason to think that CO is insane. Only reasonable hand he could do that with that you beat is 66 and even then he has 8 outs. If you're behind you have 2 outs.

      You should know right when you raise the flop why you're doing it, if you're doing it for value planning to call a shove since he's a spazzmonkey, or if it's just a bastard information/protection raise, in which case your plan should be to fold against a 3betting range.

      Hope it helps.
