      Why are you raising the flop? You're turning your hand into a bluff here. Raising for information is sooooo bad and that's pretty much all you're doing here imo. Just call the hand down... you've got TPTK + you're still drawing for 4 outs for a straight if the guy has AK / KK.

      As played this is an easy fold.

      if you raise on that flop, then you have to call shove, since he´d shove there any Ax hand that he 3-bet pf.
      But since board isn´t that drawy and if you´re behind you have outs to improve I like calling flop, calling turn and then evaluating river if I want to call down.
