      I think you should give up on the check raise. What kind of hands raise you on that flop? QQ/JJ I think call you down. AA could be trapping but is unlikely. 55/33 definately fit their range and I don't see anyone decent overplaying a 46/42 straight draw. Since a 5 hit the board I'm guessing villain had 33?

      It's very very hard to fold a preflop premium in this type of boards, but without stats or reads, it's better to cut your losses and make tough folds IMO. With reads of villain(s) being a fish/maniac I'd definately go broke, but against an unknown that check raise looks very strong on a dry flop.

      If BB had a full stack i'd say he's likely a reg and i'd put him on a pocket pair every single time when he overcalls preflop, which means when he raises that board in that spot you're 2-outing all day long.

      As it is, BB looks like he's not rebuying so he could be more on the fishy side. I don't mind either going broke or folding without further information. You're the one that has the reads ;) If he's some aggro fish go broke, if he's a passive fish or a reg you're dead most likely.

      Hope it helps.
