      I'd reraise a little more cause the flop was so dangerous

      As dingdeng said against such a loose player you should probably raise bigger on such a flop, there are a ton of hands he'll continue with that can outdraw you and you want to charge them plenty for it.

      After that it's hard to say, he doesn't seem to be the type of player who would just check/shove a worse hand on the turn, but after only 17 hands you never know.

      I'd probably call it off getting more than 2:1 on the offchance he shows up with stuff like JT/AcKx, and we likely still have outs even against a flush. The only way we're in terrible shape is if he played a higher set weirdly, which is possible but unlikely. If i had seen him play two pairs passively before or something like that, i would probably find a fold in that spot tho.

      Hope it helps.
