      If you think he's capable of paying off when you hit then calling might be better. Raising the flop is ok as well, but his re-raise is something we didn't want to see here as it gets us near to commited. Anyway you're even if he's holding just a pair on the flop. If you think you can create some FE with shoving after his minre-raise this actually might be a (good) line too. Since if you don't hit the turn and he bets into you it's most likely a fold.

      Hi undercover82!

      I would just call on the flop and see what the turn brings. Like you played it I would push all-in on the flop to make sure that you see two cards and don't have to fold if you don't improve on the turn like in this case.

      Good luck at the tables!
