      He was stealing often enough so i strongly doubt he held 2 better pairs or a set. Should i put him on a draw then , and is the reraise/rest of the hand correct?

      I think you played the hand very well. The reraise is correct because you have to protect your hand against draws. Since the draw hit on the turn and your opponent moves all-in it's an easy fold.

      Good luck at the tables!
